From The Executive Program Director
The mission of the University of Illinois-MGH residency program is to train the next generation of leaders in surgery by providing the highest quality of academic surgical education rooted in the principals of cognition and meta-cognition. We endeavor to provide excellence in patient care that is delivered with respect, kindness, altruism, and compassion. Surgical excellence in all six competencies with technical supremacy are taught and objectively measured to foster skills of lifelong learning. Faculty as well as the residents will be measured on the same metrics and will continue to complement each other to excel.
