Surgical Education

The surgeons at Genesis Health Group, Davenport Surgical serve as instructors in surgery for the Genesis Family Medical Residency Program, teaching residents in the area of surgical diseases. Two surgeons have academic appointments at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine. Dr. Joseph Lohmuller is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Surgery and Dr. Michael Phelps is a Clinical Instructor in Surgery. They both regularly participate with mock oral boards at the University. Senior medical students from the University of Iowa are given the opportunity to come to Davenport to work with DSG surgeons for their surgical rotation. DSG also participates with several universities for educational experiences for their PA programs.
