The General Surgery Residency, a leading academic surgical training program, consistently has helped reshape the traditional model of teaching residents how to operate.
The program has been at the forefront of national surgical curriculum development and was among the first to introduce early specialization programs and training models incorporating evaluation and feedback.
Washington University surgical residents and fellows are expected to actively participate in a major patient safety/quality improvement project during their training. A major recent focus has been resident well-being.
