General Surgery Program Director Welcome

Paul W. Nelson, MD, FACS

Thank you for your interest in MountainView’s General Surgery Residency Program. 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 MountainView’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 welcome applications.
