GENERAL SURGERY 

Baptist Health System offers two options for training in general surgery: a five-year Categorical program (#1903440C0), leading to eligibility for examination by the American Board of Surgery; and a Preliminary program (#1903440P0) offering preparation for further training in a surgical or related specialty.  

The primary objective of our programs is to provide comprehensive training in surgery to prepare surgeons for independent practice or for additional specialty training. We strive to achieve excellence in patient care for the full range of surgical disorders and to instill an academic mindset toward clinical practice and an appreciation of basic concepts of surgical research. We believe that optimal training of surgeons occurs in a collegial atmosphere, where patients and professional colleagues are treated with respect and sensitivity to their needs as persons.
