Surgical Medical Research
A two year surgical research experience following the PGY2 year is encouraged but considered optional. Alternatives including shorter or longer research time, as well as occurring after the PGY3 year, can be considered. This research experience is a way to augment the surgical education received during the clinical years, and to help create strong surgeon-scientists.
