We offer numerous weekly, monthly and quarterly learning activities for fellows. These include:

Presentations by full-time and community faculty, as well as faculty from other institutions. Such lectures often include content that provides a multidisciplinary approach to surgical patient care

  • Case presentations that discuss complications and causes of death in patients admitted to the surgical teaching services

Visiting Professors are scheduled approximately four times per year. The Visiting Professor typically presents at Friday Grand Rounds.
