General Surgery Program Director Welcome
Paul W. Nelson, MD, FACS
Thank you for your interest in the Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education
Consortium. As Program Director, I bring over 30 years’ experience
as a surgeon and surgical educator, and was the founding Program Director
at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis until relocating to Las Vegas.
The program was accredited in 2016 for 28 residency positions. The first
class of residents began work July 2016. We have expanded with additional
residents in academic year 2017-18.
I am excited about mentoring and training surgeons who are just beginning
their careers and the opportunities available for residents at Sunrise
Health’s General Surgery Residency Program.
Although a commitment to remain in Nevada is not a requirement, we are
especially interested in surgeons who are interested in practicing in
this underserved area.
I invite you to explore the site for program specific information, eligibility
requirements, and application links. The faculty and I are pleased to
