Colorectal surgery residency training program
Surgical education and the training of medical students, residents, fellows and physicians in practice is an integral piece of our division’s academic endeavors. We strive to cultivate those individuals with a passion for surgery, through one on one teaching opportunities, educational course series options and hands-on instruction in clinical and laboratory settings.
The CRS Residency program is a one year curriculum in CRS preparing the trainee for clinical practice whether in an academic setting (research/teaching) or the private sector. This residency follows the completion of an ACGME-accredited General Surgery (GS) Residency program. The expectation is for the trainee to ultimately pass the certifying examinations and become a diplomate of both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
