Welcome to the Indiana University Department of Surgery Education webpage. The Department of Surgery places a strong emphasis on education for students, residents, and fellows. The development that occurs from a novice surgeon to a competent surgeon requires a defined curriculum, a dedicated teaching faculty, and an environment that is optimal for patient care. Surgical education at Indiana University upholds these standards and seeks to be among the top surgical departments that achieve excellence in physician training.
In addition to educating surgeon trainees, the Department of Surgery strives to provide faculty development opportunities to help faculty at all levels be successful with enhancing their skills in teaching, research and service.
Finally, research in surgical education is an emerging focus for the department with the intent of maximizing faculty/resident/student efforts in scholarship.
