Operative Experience

Junior residents at Stanford perform 100-300 cases per year beginning in the PGY-1 year. When you visit us you will have the opportunity to speak with our residents for details of their individual experiences.

A finishing Chief Resident at Stanford will, on average, have performed more than 1000 operations and will have had an excellent personal experience in all of the primary components of General Surgery.

Teaching Conferences

There is a full range of conferences that take place at Stanford and the affiliated hospitals. These include Surgical Grand Rounds, the weekly Morbidity and Mortality conferences, Breast Cancer and Gastrointestinal Tumor Boards, Basic Science and Attending Service rounds. 

We record our Ground Rounds and upload the videos to YouTube each week. View our playlist to the right.
