New Gen Surg Landing Page (General Surgery Residency)


The General Surgery Program at the University of Virginia offers a five-year program filled with rigorous clinical experience, protected research time, structured curriculum and individual attention from faculty.

As a resident, you will learn pre-operative and post-operative patient care with a strong focus on critical care, develop surgical technical skills and, most importantly, acquire pre-, intra-, and post-operative decision-making skills.

Within the program, we have cultivated a a culture and an expectation that our residents seek opportunities to educate others. This is modeled by our faculty, who have won a disproportionate percentage of the teaching awards available at UVA.

Faculty and residents share their education experiences.
