Surgery Residency Program
The BUSM/BMC Surgery Residency Program is a five-year program with six categorical residents per year, five chosen through ERAS, and since 2021, one position each year reserved for an active-duty military resident chosen through the military match. It provides residents with the range and depth of academic experience and clinical exposure required to develop superior surgical skills. Trainees also have diverse opportunities to engage in significant and impactful research, ranging from quality improvement and patient safety to surgical education and healthcare disparities. The majority of graduates pursue fellowship training, and all are well prepared for success in their future careers. Learn more.
