Department of Surgery Vision

Modern surgeons, leading a cascading impact to transform our profession.

We are successfully leading the transformation in surgery by focusing on these six strategic pillars:

  • Our rich history has created the foundation for our latest innovations and forward thinking strategies to cultivate education research and patient care. We expect each member of our team to make a celebrated contribution to this well-known reputation.
  • We are the clinical powerhouse of the Gulf South. Our surgeons are first choice among patients and providers. We focus especially on organizing care for complex patients and meeting the health needs of underserved populations.
  • We develop the modern surgeon through a curriculum that drives excellence in surgical skill and these four areas: effective teaming, learning systems, wellness and leadership development.
  • Our research is meaningful, unique and translates to clinical practice. Our academic surgeons lead the way in shaping the guidelines that improve the quality and efficiency of surgical practice.
  • We successfully recruit diverse faculty and trainees from all populations and geographic regions so our impact reaches into every community.
  • We intentionally create an esprit de corps where the whole person thrives. Our alum seek and hold leadership roles in our societies and in other centers, allowing us to spread our cultural principles throughout the surgical profession.
