Surgery Residency: Didactics

Departmental Conferences and Simulation Center Training

About Our Educational Experience

HCMC’s Surgery Residency requires all residents to attend our mandatory departmental conference each Tuesday. Surgical residents can also participate in a variety of optional, hospital-wide conferences on topics ranging from ethics to critical care.

Our program takes full advantage of HCMC’s state-of-the-art Interdisciplinary Simulation and Education Center to help residents prepare for real-life surgical situations and SICU leadership.
