About This Program
The Duke General Surgery Residency Program is dedicated to providing a comprehensive training program. This encompasses the entire breadth of core general surgery and the general surgery subspecialties, which includes cardiothoracic, abdominal transplant, oncology, vascular, endocrine, colorectal, trauma, and pediatric surgery. Our program offers diverse clinical settings for training and includes Duke University, Duke Raleigh, Duke Regional, and the Asheville/ Durham Veteran’s Administration Hospitals.
The Department of Surgery at Duke’s primary goal is to provide the best clinical and investigative program for students, residents, and faculty. Each resident's experience is tailored to meet his or her needs.
There are a number of factors to be considered when choosing a residency program and clearly, one of the most important is the track record of the recent graduates. The training program is intentionally broad-based and has produced graduates with a wide variety of clinical and research interests.
