Write in the program on our transaction page About the Hitchcock Surgical Society Founded in 1969 by Claude R. Hitchcock, MD, the Hitchcock Surgical Society exists with the goals of encouraging the study, elevating the standards, improving the practice, and advancing the science of surgery. To date, the Society has inducted 231 surgeons dating back to Minneapolis General Hospital’s graduating class of 1955. Members include graduates of the Minneapolis General Hospital and the Hennepin County Medical Center General Surgery Residency Programs, as well as select surgeons and other professionals in the community who have contributed significantly to the teaching effort by hosting rotations and providing other learning opportunities for residents. The Society has established a charitable fund within the Hennepin Healthcare Foundation that supports surgery resident research. This fund will help to shape the residents into technically excellent clinicians, researchers, and teachers of the next generation. Claude R.

Those selected to enter the surgical residency are passionate about caring for an underserved and culturally diverse patient base and have already proven themselves as outstanding among their peers. The challenging patient base that shapes our surgeons also provides a rich data mine from which residents build research, in keeping with the Society's goals of improving the practice, elevating the standards, and advancing the science of surgery. Tax-deductible charitable investments help us to shape these young, committed individuals into fine surgeons who can contribute beyond their technical skills.
