Medical Student Education
Match Day 2007 Results
Education in the Department
of Surgery comprises medical student clinical clerkships and electives,
graduate medical education resident and fellowship programs, basic
scientist training, and continuing medical education seminars and
classes. Our surgical clerkship has become a model of innovation
for clinical education and has led to a marked increase in the number
of medical students at the University of Cincinnati choosing surgery
as their career path. We also serve as an educational resource for
our colleagues in the Greater Cincinnati region and other academic
institutions seeking unique training and CME credit.
Complementing the clinical training are outstanding
opportunities to participate in basic science research in the Department
of Surgery, other basic science laboratories within the College
of Medicine, or extramural institutions. While research is optional,
most residents choose to spend one or two years in laboratory research
with a faculty mentor. Opportunities are available during this time
to pursue advanced degrees such as Ph.D. or Doctor of Science.
Surgical education programs in the Department of Surgery
at the University of Cincinnati have a proud tradition of being
among the premier programs in the country.
We welcome your interest in our education program
and invite you to learn more about our shared vision of surgical
education of the 21st century.
