Academic faculty Dr. Karen Deveney teaching residentsThe Department of Surgery prides itself on its comprehensive residency and fellowship training programs, emphasizing academic excellence and utilizing a team approach in educating future surgeons. We are dedicated to assisting residents and fellows in achieving their diverse career goals, whether it be practicing general surgery in a rural area or attaining a faculty position in an urban academic medical center.

We are committed to teaching an innovative curriculum that not only fosters technical skill but a strong foundation of knowledge. Both faculty and staff are eagerly looking forward to all learners accessing cutting-edge simulation experiences with the opening of OHSU’s new simulation center in September 2014. Resident and fellow involvement in research is encouraged within each division, producing many published articles and presentations at local, regional, and national conferences each year.
