Clinical Experience

Our program places a strong emphasis in early operative and graduated resident responsibility. We provide residents with a wide range of clinical experiences. The volume of operative experience is excellent and easily exceeds the minimum requirements as determined by the ACGME Residency Review Committee for Surgery. There are no competing surgical fellowships in Wichita.
