The Department of Surgery is one of the busiest and active departments of the Faculty of Medicine  and Health Sciences of the University Malaysia Sarawak  being involved in the undergraduate and post graduate teaching-learning activities, clinical works at the Sarawak General  Hospital, research works and other social activities.

Unlike the other years, we have absorbed the Accident and Emergency Medicine and Anaesthesiology under the Department of Surgery in addition to Otolaryngology ( ENT).
