Chairman's Message

ChildsWelcome to the Department of Surgery at Morehouse School of Medicine. Since the Department of Surgery came into existence in 1993, we have been on a mission to train excellent surgeons who are committed to providing high quality compassionate care for all patients. We take pride in training a diverse population of future leaders.

While the Department of Surgery is known for excellence in trauma and critical care, our recent initiatives over the past year include: enhancing the clinical experience in laparoscopic/robotic, endovascular, and colorectal surgery.

MSM's Department of Surgery is “indeed a small department doing extraordinary things.” We welcome your comments.

Ed W. Childs, M.D.
Professor and Chairman of Surgery
