For over a quarter century, the NIH T32 Research Training Grant in Gastrointestinal Surgery has supported the training of general surgeons who treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. The program, The program led by Hobart W. Harris, M.D., M.P.H., Professor and Chief of the Division of General Surgery, provides general surgery residents with rigorous training in one of three chosen tracks: preclinical, clinical, or translational research. The training will provide the tools necessary to genuinely bridge the gap between laboratory and observations and applied diagnostics and therapeutics. These skills will empower our trainees so they can assume the mantle of academic surgery leaders of the future.

Our new web portal enables program participants to submit updates, news stories, and anonymous or personal feedback to program leadership, a growing “family tree” through which trainees and faculty can stay connected through shared activities, past, present and future.
