Find out more about our Residents in the Resident Directory

When I interviewed for general surgery residency, the one aspect that stood out compared to other training programs was the autonomy given to the residents. It is difficult to appreciate the importance of autonomy until you are practicing independently with no one looking over your shoulder and no other assistance in the operating room. I have had quite a few difficult cases my first year out in practice including a patient with severe cholecystitis with a BMI over 60 and another patient with a large intra-abdominal sarcoma, and I am thankful that my training prepared me well to tackle even the most difficult patients. Being out in practice now, I can tell you that the autonomy I received as a resident prepared me well to practice independently and made the transition to practice as smooth as possible. If you are looking for broad-based general surgery training that prepares you for practice, then come to the University of Louisville. "
