The Department of Surgery has residency programs for Neurosurgery, General Surgery, Plastic Surgery and Urology.
The Neurosurgery Residency Program of the University of Missouri is driven by an outstanding and dedicated faculty committed to training the best and brightest neurosurgical residents. Residents are individually mentored, evaluated and promoted, and are regularly asked to participate in continual program improvement efforts. This structure enables residents to develop into neurosurgical leaders in their chosen specialty area.
General Surgery Residency
With more than 50 years of continuous surgical resident education, the General Surgery Residency Program is a fully-accredited, five-year university academic surgical program approved to finish four graduates annually. Our outstanding and notable faculty are dedicated to surgical education, and we pride ourselves in creating confident and capable young surgeons who are able to tackle the rigorous and rewarding career ahead, with or without a fellowship.
Plastic Surgery Residency
The Division of Plastic Surgery residency program is a pioneer of the integrated resident pathway. As one of the five original integrated plastic surgery programs, our innovative apprenticeship model of surgical education provides the opportunity for real mentorship and emphasizes early and significant exposure to plastic surgery.
Urologic Surgery Residency
The Division of Urology at the University of Missouri offers a fully accredited ACGME postgraduate residency training program focused on preparing physicians for their chosen career in either academic or community urology. A well-balanced training in both the techniques of genitourinary surgery and art of clinical practice is the foundation of this program.
