Surgical Sciences

Welcome to the Division of Surgical Sciences

The Division of Surgical Sciences serves as a nucleus that unites primarily non-clinician scientists in the Department of Surgery. It is a home for their growth, development, and mentorship. Altering discipline specific approaches, sharing resources, and integrating different disciplines achieves a common scientific goal. The DSS nurtures a research culture that is valued within the Department of Surgery and encourages non-clinician and clinician collaborations. Together, the DSS will help facilitate mentorship of junior non-clinician scientists and clinician-scientists, as well as improve the training of post-doctoral fellows, surgical residents, medical students, and Masters students.
