It is our sincere hope that this site will give you a clear understanding of the surgical training opportunities at University of Illinois at Chicago. This website is for you, but it is about us. It is about the residents who have completed their training at Stanford and it is about the residents who are here now. It is about the contributions these two groups will make to the future of surgery and to the care of their patients as they move through their careers. It is also about you, should you come to UIC, because you will become a part of a great history and legacy.
