Training Program

The Department of Surgery at PENN is committed to Medical Student Education. We recognize that you represent the future of medicine. Whether you choose to be a surgeon or another type of physician, we are committed to providing you with a comprehensive surgical experience within our Department.

Each faculty and housestaff member has chosen to work at the University of Pennsylvania, in part, because of the opportunity to work with students like yourselves. Our dedication to medical student education begins at the top.

We are proud of the experiences that we provide for you by the patients bedside, in the operating room, the office, and the classroom. We are constantly working to improve our methods of teaching the art and science of Surgery within a safe learning environment.

We invite you to explore our website and learn more about your educational opportunities within the Department of Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.
