General Surgery Residency Program

Message from the Program Director

Wade G. Douglas, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Dr. Douglas

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Florida State University College of Medicine General Surgery Residency Program at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.

Florida State University College of Medicine and Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare have collaborated to develop the first general surgery program in the Panhandle region of Florida. Residents have the opportunity to begin their operative education early in a community based residency program with the educational resources of a large academic institution. Residents are exposed to the latest technology in general surgery and residency training; for example, robotic surgery, endovascular surgery and telemedicine. The city of Tallahassee provides an opportunity to train in a warm, culturally diverse, mid-size city that offers a lot of outdoor recreational activities.

Our goal is to develop well-rounded general surgeons that will have the ability to practice in a rural setting or in a large academic institution.
