    • To graduate competent, board-eligible surgeons who are qualified for competitive fellowships, if desired.
    • To integrate our residents into a collaborative team-based learning environment.
    • To promote quality improvement and patient safety in our residency program to ensure compassionate, high-value care to our community.
