Welcome to the WMed Surgery Clinic
The Surgery Clinic is a residency physician training program that specializes in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of adults. Our surgical resident physicians participate in a five-year training program, instructed and supervised by board-certified surgical attending physicians. Medical and physician assistant (PA) students also receive education through our surgery program. Our goal is to prepare our resident physicians to be knowledgeable and to deliver the highest quality of care to their patients.
The WMed Surgery Clinic is committed to providing exceptional patient care in an educational setting. We provide 24-hour coverage at both local hospitals, Borgess Medical Center and Bronson Methodist Hospital, including both inpatient and outpatient care.
