The five-year General Surgery Residency Program at UBC is designed to produce surgeons with broadly based academic and clinical expertise. The caliber and spirit of our residents and faculty, diversity of academic and community rotations, and exceptional simulation and research opportunities are some of the strengths of the program. Every aspect of the program is run with resident input and leadership, and we are proud of the contributions that our diverse, motivated, collegial (and fun!) residents have made.
Our program strives to maximize resident involvement and optimize leadership potential at all levels including Town Hall meetings, Annual Resident Retreat and Resident Research Day and involvement in various committees such as Residency Program Committee, Competence by Design Committee, Selection Committee and Social Committee.
