Excellence in Education
A significant part of University Surgical Associates (USA) mission is to educate surgical residents in the ethics, art and science of surgery.
Through collaboration with the University of Tennessee College of Medicine as its surgical department faculty, the UT/USA residency program, which includes five clinical years of surgery and one year of clinical research, graduates four chief general surgery residents and fellows in critical care and vascular surgery each year.
Graduating residents regularly obtain the most competitive surgical fellowships available nationally or easily transition into the practice of surgery upon graduation. Many surgeons and surgical specialists practicing in the region have trained in the UT/USA program.
