Responsibilities of Surgical Residents

Department of Surgery is committed to providing excellent care of patients seen in the clinics, in consulta­tion, or those admitted to the service. The residents perform their responsibilities under the supervision of attending surgeons. Residents are taught to have compassion for their patients, to understand patient's needs, and to communicate with the patients regularly in simple non technical language.

To meet these responsibilities the residents are grouped into 3 categories:

Junior Residents
