This is a five-year program. The General Surgery program features a varied and balanced incidence of surgical problems, including all required rotations for surgery, rotations in endoscopy, and training in microvascular techniques. The McLaren Oakland clinical caseload embraces a large volume of elective and emergency surgeries. In both cases, the resident is exposed to common and complex surgical problems.
Residents participate in the Educational Program of the Statewide Campus System of the MSUCOM didactic curriculum for General Surgery, McLaren Oakland didactic and clinical conferences, tumor and trauma conferences, case reviews, lectures by attending staff, and a journal club.
First year is OGME-1r (option 1). Students will "match" directly into the residency and the 1st postdoctoral year will be considered the first year of residency training.
