General Surgery Residency: Graduate Testimonials 

See what our graduates are saying about the General Surgery Residency Program: 

I cannot say enough positive comments about my experience in Des Moines with Mercy’s general surgery program.  I did not enter residency training wanting to subspecialize but choose the program due to the solid foundation in general surgery as well as the great volume & breadth of complexity we have the opportunity to see in Des Moines.  There is no doubt that Mercy’s program provides an excellent foundation for any surgeon.


The strength of the subspecialties we also have the opportunity to work with makes Mercy an easy choice for anyone considering fellowship.   The volume of cases is, again, second to none.  All of the specialist staff put forth the extra effort to generate your interest in their specialty & also become your biggest advocates in the application process including the excellent research opportunities that are available at Mercy.  I felt remarkably prepared for fellowship thanks to my opportunities at Mercy.
