Message from the Program Director

I am proud to present the Department of Surgery at the University of Cincinnati, where our missions are:

  1. To provide comprehensive, compassionate and skilled surgical services for Cincinnati and the surrounding region.
  2. To train the next generation of surgeon leaders.
  3. To advance the state-of-the-art and scientific basis of the discipline of surgery.
  4. To provide leadership in ensuring health care for all members of the Cincinnati community.

To fulfill these missions, we continue to build on our historical foundation of exceptional clinical service, teaching, and research. We celebrate diversity while sharing the goals of surgical excellence, scientific discovery, and professional development.

The department of surgery comprises more than 160 core surgical faculty plus advanced practice providers, nurses, pharmacists, support staff and affiliated institution faculty who all take great pride in their patient care responsibilities while maintaining a strong relationship with our institutional colleagues and community partners. They are also dedicated to training approximately 200 medical students and over 100 residents/fellows each year.

Our academic achievements have also continued to be very strong, and included in these webpages are a representative listing of resident and faculty publications and presentations. The Department of Surgery is proud to have secured new NIH and extramural grants providing funding for the impactful discoveries coming from our laboratories dedicated to improving the health of our patients.

Along with the UC College of Medicine, our department’s vision is be indispensable through excellence in surgical care, in the training of tomorrows’ surgeons, and in the discoveries that will improve healing and give hope to our patients.

Thank you.
