As a trainee in our residency, you’ll work with knowledgeable faculty members including Carroll M. Harmon, MD, who directs our program. Harmon co-led the first national effort to assess the safety and efficacy of bariatric surgery on adolescents.

It is one of the original 9 training programs in Pediatric Surgery and has graduated 36 accredited Pediatric Surgery fellows since its inception.
