Research interests in the Division of General Surgery include active programs in oncology, shock, metabolism, biliary disease, and gastrointestinal motility. Opportunities are available for up to three years of individual research in these areas or in basic science laboratories. The residents are strongly encouraged to assist in clinical research projects, to author clinical reports and book chapters, and to present papers at regional and national surgical meetings.

The division recognizes that research is a critical cornerstone in the development of new patient treatments and therapies. In the Bariatric Program, clinical studies are underway that focus on surgical weight loss; in General Surgery, Drs. Poulose and Holzman are studying a broad array of gastrointestinal disorders as part of its effective outcomes research, and in Colorectal Surgery, faculty are studying the genetic basis for colorectal neoplasia.
