McGovern Medical School is situated in the heart of the largest medical center in the world, in the fourth largest city in the nation and the largest city in the South. Houston’s incredible diversity is reflected in the clinical experience available to our residents. They rotate in a variety of hospitals—both public and private, and both general and highly specialized, including some recognized as among the best hospitals around.

Under the direction of Program Director Dr. Sasha Adams, we evaluate several hundred completed applications each year from graduates of medical schools all across the United States (and elsewhere) to work with our large, dedicated and extremely capable faculty who bring with them national and international reputations for their expertise in most of the areas which constitute general surgery. Resident and faculty work together to help every trainee to design a course of study to best meet their future needs.

Combined with the wealth of optional research opportunities available to our residents, we have been successful at placing our recent graduates into highly competitive specialty fellowships, solo rural practice, and every other conceivable position. We welcome your inquiry; come help us create the next chapter of surgical history at McGovern Medical School.
