Surgery Plus Program

Developing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today.

Unique opportunities are available at the University at Buffalo General Surgery Residency Program. There is more to that goes into providing healthcare than just being a skilled medical professional. We encourage our residents to understand the deeper depths of the industry. Our students have the opportunity to pursue an integrated MBA, a Masters in Engineering, earn scholarships, perform research and study medical bioinformatics!


Integrated MBA Fellowship

Kaleida Health/ UB School of Management MBA Scholarship

Residents enter the program after their PGY 2 or 3 year. During the next two years resident responsibility is split between clinical practice and MBA classes. This means that surgical residency is never interrupted for more than a few months and the total addition to the education is only one year. This program is intended for the resident wishing to be a leader in the field of surgical administration and to shape the direction of the field of surgery.
