Welcome to USF General Surgery
General Surgery Resident Education
The University of South Florida General Surgery residency is a five-year, non-pyramidal, ACGME accredited program that is approved to graduate six residents each year. The goal of the residency program is to produce the well-rounded, competent general surgeon, fully trained in the principles and techniques required of a general surgeon. We are dedicated to the growth and maturation of residents toward the end objectives of not only certification by the American Board of Surgery but also independent practice. Our mission is to provide exceptional patient care, educational excellence, and outstanding research.
