Message from the Director

Welcome to the Iowa Methodist Medical Center General Surgery Residency Program. Our fully accredited five-year residency training program is one of the premier community hospital-based residency programs available.

The Iowa Methodist Medical Center general surgery program offers the unique blend of a large tertiary care center, a Veterans Affairs Medical Center and an active county hospital. This mix provides a variety of patient care opportunities as well as a diverse faculty committed to teaching and academic excellence.

Our residency program prides itself in early operative exposure, progressive resident autonomy and flexibility tailored to meet individual career goals.

Additionally, our values of caring, respect, integrity and commitment to excellence in patient care and teaching are incorporated into everything we do.

We invite you to consider the opportunities offered by Iowa Methodist Medical Center and would welcome the opportunity to visit with you further about our residency. Please contact us with any questions you may have.
