About This Program
The University of Illinois Surgery Residency is a fully accredited, five-year program approved to finish four chief residents each year. It is based in a large tertiary care center serving the medical needs of Central Illinois. The Department is committed to preparing surgeons to provide surgical care in a variety of settings. Graduates of our residency program develop clinical and operative skills to manage a full spectrum of illnesses treated by General Surgeons including emphasis on General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Colon and Rectal Surgery, Trauma Surgery, Endoscopy, and Laparoscopic Surgery. Residents also develop and mature research skills that will enhance their surgical knowledge and allow them to critically and independently evaluate new information and discoveries in their field. This is a pro-resident environment with strong ancillary hospital services. Our curriculum is flexible, to accommodate personal goals; our fine faculty is dedicated to the education of our residents.
