A Welcome from the Program Director:

Welcome to Arnot and thank you for your interest in general surgery! Our Mission is to guide and educate surgeons as they develop skills and expertise to provide safe, high value patient care through professional, ethical, and compassionate behavior.  We empower resident to continuously improve their education, practice and community healthcare as a whole. Additionally, opportunities for exposure to plastic surgery, urology, cardiac and thoracic and vascular surgery are available.
