Surgery residency program curriculum

Our Surgery Residency Program finds its strength in collaboration, access to patients and the close relationship forged between residents and faculty. In addition, collaboration with the University of Houston, College of Medicine provides invaluable experience to our residents, allowing for flexibility in clinical settings, faculty development, research support and innovation.

Our residents are able to experience rotations at facilities offering advanced cardiovascular and stroke care, thriving general and oncology surgery coverage, access to minimally-invasive and hepatobiliary service, and pediatric surgery. We hope to provide access to an international/rural elective rotation at the PGY-4 level, providing our residents with greater sense of responsibility for low resource surgical care.

In addition, residents participate in meaningful investigation, which has the potential to change the way we practice surgery in the future.

Surgery rotation schedule

Our ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) accredited five-year program is offered at HCA Houston Healthcare Kingwood. Our residents also rotate to HCA Houston Healthcare North Cypress with access to a busy minimally invasive and hepatobiliary service and HCA Houston Healthcare Clear Lake for pediatric surgery.
