General Surgery Residency

PGY-4 Electives

The General Surgery Residency Program provides a fourth-year elective experience, sponsored by the Department of Surgery, allowing residents to spend a rotation in an out-of-state setting or to obtain 4-6 weeks of additional experience in a specialty of their choice, either at University of Colorado Hospital or at another institution. The department pays for resident salary and benefits, which is critical support for this program.

The residency program supports University of Colorado Surgical residents at the PGY-4 level and complies with RRC for Surgery and Board of Surgery guidelines for surgical residency international elective applications.

Two of our international residency sites have completed a twinning relationship by sending residents to our program through a program letter of agreement between surgery residency programs.
