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, chief residents perform more than 300 major procedures in their final year. In the years prior to becoming chief 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. Listen to what our residents have to say about their experience.
OUr administrative chief, Dr. Kiran Venincasa, highlights the daily interactions of the "day in the life of a resident".
