Creating a New Kind of Doctor
We recruit and train physician leaders as comfortable taking on systemic challenges in health as caring for individual patients.
Discovery to Impact — Faster
We reward creative thinking and encourage rapid experimentation, using collaborative programs to speed promising research to market.
Improving Care. Improving Health.
We’re here to make health — including health care — better. The end goal is a complete revolution in how people get and stay healthy.
Health in the Landscape of Life
Enabling the healthscape, the ecosystem outside the clinic, requires improving the system to pay for health drivers.

Director’s Welcome

Thank you for your interest to learn more about our General Surgery Residency program. Our five-year, categorical general surgery program began in July 2009, and our three one-year preliminary resident positions started in 2017. Our program is based primarily at Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas — a new state-of-the-art teaching hospital operated by Ascension Seton. Additionally, there are multiple rotations at Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin and Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas.

We are excited to introduce a new opportunity to our incoming residents: a Distinction Program for Care Transformation. This track allows select individuals to pursue a project involved in health care redesign and public health. Dedicated time is incorporated into the curriculum, so these individuals can design and complete their project within the five-year residency. The unique curriculum enables participants to fulfill components of Dell Medical School’s mission tied to health care redesign and promotion of value-based health care.
