Medical Education

Riverside's General Surgery Residency has a long tradition of strength in didactic surgical education combined with a rich clinical experience. Over the past twenty years, more than 98% of our residents have passed the Certifying Examination of the American Board of Surgery. 100% of our trainees have passed the Qualifying Examination. Our residents typically score a standard deviation above the norm on the ABSITE in-training examination.

Our conferences represent a strong mix of case presentation and lecture.
