Graduates

The success of any training program is reflected by the success of its graduates. We are proud of our graduates' academic achievements and the standard of surgical care they provide their communities. Our graduates have consistently maintained a high pass rate on the American Board of Surgery qualifying (written) and certifying (oral) examinations. The most recent five year cumulative pass rate for our graduates is 100%, with 100% passing on the first attempt.

Many of our graduates enter a career in a general surgery practice. A number of our graduates choose to practice in rural settings and also in larger cities with larger surgical groups. Thus, our graduates are trained to practice in any type of surgical setting.

Typically one-third of our graduating residents have chosen sub-specialty careers and our community based general surgery program has prepared them well for a fellowship training. Our residents who have sought fellowships have obtained positions in excellent, competitive programs. This is what our graduates have done for the past five years:
