Mission statements can be inspiring or just words. They can be things we write and forget or they can guide us in daily decisions. The Department of Surgery’s mission statement: “The Department of Surgery will provide compassionate and high quality patient care, train future generations of surgical leaders and conduct research in a collegial environment which embraces diversity and promotes inclusiveness.” These words are inspiring and do guide us. Our mission statement is a reflection of the daily commitment, passion and aspirations of the people in this Department – staff, surgeons, residents and fellows. We make future departmental plans, perform surgery, teach residents, and conduct research in ways that make this mission statement come alive. MORE
