Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center provides comprehensive, state of the art surgical care to the Southern Piedmont and Southeastern United States, and educate the next generation of healthcare providers and innovators.
The clinical program incorporates a broad range of rotations and patient care experiences in general surgery and the respective surgical specialties. The first two years of training are focused on general care of the surgical patient, critical care medicine, and basic surgical skill acquisition. During the third and fourth clinical years, the resident has the opportunity to function as the senior resident on respective services, thereby gaining progressive maturity of surgical judgment and technical skills. During the chief residency year, the individual is expected to oversee the care of their respective surgical services and assume the role of the “operating surgeon” on most procedures. The operative experience gained during his/her residency is both broad and complex in areas of hepatobiliary, trauma, and upper abdominal vascular procedures. In addition, senior responsibilities on pediatric surgery and transplantation provide a depth of experience in these areas of surgery.
