Baylor Health Care System’s Colon and Rectal Surgery Residency program annually accepts two new residents. The program lasts one year and is approved by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Eligible candidates have completed a five-year residency program in general surgery.
Curtice Rosser, MD, who helped found the American Board of Proctology, established Baylor’s residency program in colon and rectal surgery in 1953. Since then, three graduates from our program have become president of the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery and two have been elected president of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
