General Surgery Residency Program

The Department of Surgery at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine offers six categorical general surgery positions each academic year. All categorical PGY-1 residents are selected through the National Resident Matching Program. In our program, on average, senior residents perform more than 300 major procedures in their final year. In the years prior to becoming senior resident, residents perform an average of 600 operations and serve as the first assistant on an additional 200-300 procedures, which include virtually all operations in the field of general surgery, as well as numerous bedside procedures critical to the care of patients.

We only accept applications through the Electronic Residency Application Service. Detailed information on the application process and other helpful information about our program can be found below.

Any questions or comments may be emailed to, or contact Residency Program Director and Professor of Surgery Dr. Jason Lees.
