Located in West Virginia's capital city, the 956-bed tertiary care medical center is composed of four hospitals and draws patients from both urban and rural areas, offering our team a diversity hard to find elsewhere. Because CAMC's service area spans the southern half of the state, we provide a wide range of specialty services and draw a broad range of challenging referrals.
Comprehensive Clinical Training
The five-year non-pyramidal program is designed to produce a balanced general surgeon equally capable of practicing in academic or community hospital settings.
Training includes significant practice in trauma and critical care, vascular surgery and plastic surgery, surgical oncology and cardiothoracic surgery. Residents have additional training in robotic surgery, resulting in full credentialing by the end of the chief year. Trainees also gain significant experience in state of the art angiographic and interventional labs.
The average experience for chief residents completing the program is approximately 1,100 cases in five years-more than fulfilling the requirements of the American Board of Surgery in number, mixture and complexity.
