General Surgery Residency

General Surgery Residency On-Line Handbook


Our program strives to cultivate an environment that embraces professionalism, which critically impacts educational, patient, and institutional outcomes.   We apply the principles and responsibilities of the Physician Charter published by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in 2002. The Professionalism Charter is a living document that defines the elements of professionalism for all UTMB faculty, staff, and students. In alignment with UTMB’s strategic vision for the future, “The Road Ahead,” the Professionalism Charter is a guide to the standard of conduct for everyone at UTMB.
