Check us out on Instagram! Meet residents and faculty

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. Come help us create the next chapter of surgical history at McGovern Medical School.
