The Department of Surgery at Case Western Reserve’s School of Medicine trains the surgical leaders of tomorrow. Our residency and fellowship programs are an integral part of the Department of Surgery and add to the rich culture of education and research. They are motivated, compassionate and willing to contribute to the excellence of the program. Graduates from our program continually achieve top positions and move on to make significant contributions in both clinical and academic surgery. The core curriculum follows the SCORE outline, and educational conferences are focused on case-based questions which help the residents achieve proficiency in decision making.

Through our partnerships with some of the nation’s top hospitals and centers, such as University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, our residents gain valuable skills and experience for a successful career. Our surgical training program is dynamic and steeped in tradition but has an eye towards the future.
