Welcome from the Director

A note from the director of the General Surgery Residency Program at Methodist Dallas Medical Center

Thank you for your interest in the General Surgery Residency Program at Methodist Dallas Medical Center, one of the largest and longest-standing hospitals in Dallas, Texas. Our residency program, established in 1948, offers hands-on experience and training in all aspects of General Surgery. We are a well-established, community-based residency program that is dedicated to producing superb, technically sound, and thoughtful surgeons who are equally prepared to begin a surgical practice or enter into the fellowship of their choice. From Level I Trauma, an active Transplant program, and one of the busiest Hepatobiliary programs in the country, our residents are exposed to and skilled in the full spectrum of General Surgery.

Our training program is a five-year program that accepts and graduates two categorical residents per year. Four first-year preliminary positions are also available for physicians pursuing a career in a surgical subspecialty or related field. All rotations are at Methodist Dallas Medical Center except for three months (one month at Children's Hospital during the PGY1 and PGY4 years and one month at the Parkland Burn Center during the PGY2 year). I take great pride in the education of our residents and their success in and out of the operating room is why we are here.

Unique Program Notes:

  • We are 1 of only 6 General Surgery Programs in the country who have a 5 Year Board Pass Rate of 100%
  • Our overall operative experience compares at the 91 percentile of programs across the country. While the number of cases are vitally important to surgical education, the type/complexity of cases are equally important.
    • Operative trauma volume compares at the 96%
    • Pancreas and liver cases are in the 97% and 80% respectively
    • All defined case volumes exceed 70% nationally

Sincerely,

Michael Truitt, MD
Program Director, General Surgery Residency
