Goals and Objectives

The Goals and Objectives of the Residency are as follows:

  1. To train general surgeons who are technically proficient and have mastered the six core competencies of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
  2. To be active in basic science and clinical research.
  3. To provide a solid foundation for the practice of general surgery based upon current surgical science and evidence-based practice.
  4. To prepare selected residents of appropriate motivation, orientation, and skill for subspecialty training.
  5. To create an environment that is conducive to learning and an atmosphere that is supportive to each resident’s personal life and professional goals.

The structure of the program supports these goals. The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) is among the busiest general hospitals in the state of Georgia, and provides a wealth of surgical experience. The Mercer University School of Medicine provides the educational framework, the full time faculty members holding academic appointments at Mercer. Their primary focus is on resident education and training. The partnership between the Medical Center and Mercer has been extraordinarily beneficial to the postgraduate residency program.
