Department of Surgery


The American Board of Surgery recognizes that for a variety of reasons a surgeon may temporarily leave practice. Upon reentry into clinical practice the ABS has established standards for certification. UC Davis has developed two curriculums for reintegration of surgeons in clinical practice. The curriculums are designed for general surgery and vascular surgery, they include both clinical and didactics. The goal of both is to prepare the surgeon for recertification as well as developing confidence to return to practice.
