Our Surgery training is focused on assessment and management of surgical problems in the ambulatory setting. Residents work with community surgeons to evaluate and manage pre- or post-op general and pediatric surgery cases. During our surgery rotation, residents are assigned to a single surgeon and participate in the surgeries and pre and post-operative care of the surgeon’s patients. This rotation also includes several sessions in the Wound Care Clinic, which includes management of pressure ulcers and other wounds commonly seen by family physicians.
Residents spend four weeks rotating with university dermatology attendings at various outpatient sites. Residents learn the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions and have the opportunity to perform skin procedures.
A weekly procedure clinic at Highland Family Medicine and Brown Square Health Center provides an opportunity to focus on procedural medicine. Read more information about procedures at Highland Family Medicine.
