About This Program
The Program at FAU Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine aims to train highly qualified surgeons and future leaders that can draw from a broad-based educational experience to provide evidence-based, high-quality and cost-effective care to patients with a wide range of surgical diseases. Our program emphasizes education over service, opportunities for scholarship, and exposure to all major surgical sub-specialties, as well as deep ties to the community and our patients.
A well-chosen blend of hospitals/faculty expose our residents to all facets of modern-day surgery to allow them to make well-informed career choices in both academic and non-academic settings.
The program is structured into five clinical years and one unique value-added year of scholarship [after the third clinical year]. During that year, each resident chooses to complete research projects or additional qualifications aimed at enhancing his/her capabilities to successfully pursue the career of choice.
The FAU Surgery Program strives to foster an environment of learning and scholarship, which will enable our graduates to develop excellent patient management skills, technical and procedural skills, as well as the ability to critically appraise the literature and keep abreast of surgical and technological advances years after graduating from the program. Our residents will develop the ability to understand how to teach, learn and work together efficiently across multi-specialty and multi-professional care delivery-systems in today’s complex health care environment.
