General Surgery Residency

We offer a seven-year general surgical residency training program, approved for 80 resident positions graduating 11 chief residents in general surgery each year.

The General Surgery internship currently offers 21 positions: 11 categorical and 10 preliminary. The interns will work alongside 3 Urology categorical residents, 2 Plastic Surgery integrated residents, and 1 Vascular Surgery integrated resident. To apply for Urology, Plastic Surgery integrated, or Vascular Surgery integrated positions, please contact those programs directly. There are also up to 3 preliminary positions available for a second year of surgical training in General Surgery.

During the seven year training program, our categorical residents are expected to spend two years in the Department's various research labs, research labs outside the institution, or in academic endeavors such as postgraduate education. Applicants entering the program with a PhD can establish a mentored curriculum plan tailored to their career goals.

Most of our graduates continue training in fellowship programs or embark on academic careers, although we continue to train residents who are able to excel with direct entry into clinical practice.

With the requirements of the ACGME Residency Review Committee and the American Board of Surgery, we provide a broad, well-balanced surgical experience that can be adjusted to the career goals of individual residents. Every effort is made to ensure that each resident receives an equivalent experience and fulfills the specific Board of Surgery requirements.
