UC San Diego Resident Curriculum

The goal of the UC San Diego surgical residency curriculum is to provide a challenging and engaging experience. Resident labs are typically held on a weekly basis, each with a different area of focus, and are overseen by Drs. Santiago Horgan, Garth Jacobsen and Bryan Sandler.

All courses are located at the Center for the Future of Surgery unless noted otherwise.

RSVPs should be sent to cfs@ucsd.edu.
