For Patients and Visitors
Vanderbilt University Medical Center: For Employees, Researchers, and Students


General Surgery Interest Group

     The mission of the General Surgery Interest Group (GSIG) is to provide medical students with information about a career in general surgery and to support students in their persuit of the field.

     As an introduction to the field, we highly recommend the video series "Redefining Surgery." A link to the seven-minute trailer is available here.

     In addition to this website, we also plan a variety of events for students throughout the year. These include panel discussions with general surgery residents and attending physicians, surgical skills workshops, and more.  Information about these events will be placed on the "Upcoming Events" page as they are scheduled. We hope that you find the information on our website useful, and we encourage you to attend any of our planned events.

     For any questions, concerns, or ideas, please contact the GSIG leadership (Contact information provided on the "Contact Info" page).
