The word surgery comes from the Greek "cheirourgia", a combination of the words "cheir" - hand and "ergona" meaning work. Despite the fact that surgeons like to work with their hands, many scientific discoveries originate from the work of surgeons.
The Department of Surgery is a growing unit within the Max Rady College of Medicine in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences. Our surgeons strive constantly to provide the best clinical care to patients, the most dynamic education program to students and the highest quality research to advance surgical techniques and knowledge.
The Research Office was recently established to help provide support to the surgeon researchers; promote research achievements and opportunities in the department; coordinate the annual grant competition; and annual research day. Our website is aimed to make available tools and resources to assist surgeons and residents with their research endeavours.
