Program Director 
Inova Surgery Residency Program

Thank you for your interest in the Inova Fairfax Hospital Surgery Residency Program.

We are committed to training and producing competent, experienced, intelligent, and compassionate surgeons, ready for independent practice in any surgical environment. Inova Fairfax Medical Campus houses almost 1,000 beds distributed among Inova Fairfax Hospital, Inova Children's Hospital, Inova Women's Hospital and Inova Heart and Vascular Institute, which means we are able to offer the entire breadth of surgical training within our system.

The campus also includes an ambulatory surgery center, a branch of the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine which will be transitioning to a campus of the University Of Virginia School Of Medicine, a newly constructed ten-story patient tower and a brand new Inova Women's Hospital and Inova Children's Hospital.

We are proud of our program. It is the product of outstanding residents and outstanding faculty. The program is currently fully accredited by the ACGME. The graduating chief residents routinely complete their training with over 1,000 procedures and have been successful in obtaining fellowships in their chosen fields of interest.

The information on these pages is designed to provide some insight into our institutions and our program. Our focus is providing an unparalleled surgical training experience in a clinically superior, aggressively academic, and resident friendly environment. Thank you again for your interest. We hope to hear from you soon.
