The Division of Education supports Surgical Education across the entire learner spectrum, from Undergraduate Medical Education, through Graduate Medical Education, and extending to Continuing Medical Education. We focus on the core competencies of surgery, while always keeping in mind the unique aspects of our mission to care for those in harm's way. While the core education mission of our department is focused on our integrated healthcare campus in Bethesda, Maryland, we support all surgical education throughout the Military Health System.
