WELCOME TO THE DEPARTMENT OF SURGERY

“In Surgery, together we create a culture that inspires, scholarship that innovates, and health care that transforms.”

Let us act now for who we aspire to be tomorrow. Leading change requires the articulation of a clear vision, and as important, an executable strategy. But first we as surgeons, researchers, trainees and administrators understand we are stronger together. In support of a unified vision, “Together, we are creating a culture that inspires, scholarship that innovates, and health care that transforms.” Unleashing our creative mindset as a Department is, I believe, a key to our sustained growth and resilience
