Education is one of the three missions of the UAB Division of Surgical Oncology. We believe education is key in training future generations of cancer surgeons and crucial in empowering patients to understand their own condition.

General Surgery Residency

General surgery residents receive extensive training in preoperative evaluation in the clinic and hospital settings, intraoperative technique, postoperative and critical care management, and follow-up care. Surgical residents train at four hospitals located within the downtown medical center: University, VA, UAB Highlands and Children's hospitals. Students complete Surgical Oncology cases throughout the program beginning in the first year.
