The Codman Center provides research and educational opportunities for fellows and residents interested in improving quality and safety within the Mass General Department of Surgery.

Residents have the ability to propose research initiatives based on their interests and skills. Funding may be available for accepted proposals and the Codman Center will work with residents to identify suitable funding resources outside of Mass General.

Through these research initiatives, residents broaden their exposure to surgical outcomes research and expand their skills in quality and safety measurement and metric development. The Codman Center is committed to the future of safe patient care and invests in developing leaders within this field.

Research and Fellowship Opportunities

Mass General offers fellowships to individuals interested in improving quality and safety at all levels of leadership.
