Mission Statement

The Overland Park Regional Medical Center Surgery Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

Thank you for your interest in our General Surgery Residency Training Program. Our organization is dedicated to educating future physicians who are thoroughly prepared in the basic science, clinical knowledge, cognitive and technical skills, and the judgment required of surgeons and surgical leaders.

In our five-year program, you will have many opportunities to grow and develop in an environment rich in patient care, educational experiences and research opportunities. We strive to actively develop young surgeons by cultivating our residents’ interests and mentoring them in pursuit of their passion.

An active outpatient clinic experience and regular teaching conferences round out the educational program. Our program will provide an excellent opportunity for the growth and development of our residents’ surgical careers.

Our goal is to train highly motivated individuals in the art and science of surgery who are capable immediately upon completion of the residency program of either entering practice or obtaining the most competitive subspecialty fellowships.
