Recent Research Opportunities

Research/Academics in the General Surgery Residency at the University of Colorado
In addition to the five years of clinical general surgery training, categorical residents are encouraged to spend at least one year as a resident in research/academics, but most spend two years. Opportunities for clinical as well as basic science research abound. Several of our residents have completed masters degrees during the two research years. Occasionally residents spend three years in order to satisfy the requirements for a Ph.D. The residents are also encouraged to participate in various clinical research projects in collaboration with the faculty. 
Diverse research opportunities are available to individuals seeking careers in academic surgery. Most surgical residents spend a two-year research fellowship working with established surgical faculty investigators. Residents pursue research spanning the full range of investigation from basic science to translational investigations, and clinical and outcomes-based research.
