Surgeon Scientist Program

The Department encourages and has provided support for appropriate surgical residents who pursue a Master's degree or PhD, or an equivalent program of research training. There are a number of options available, but the Department and its residents are active in the Faculty’s Royal College-accredited Clinician Investigator Program (CIP). The major goal of the CIP is to foster the development of clinician investigators in a formal educational pathway that integrates a minimum of two years of structured research training with the clinical specialty/subspecialty training requirements of the Royal College.

Interested residents should discuss this opportunity with their program director.
