Kweku Hazel, MD, PGY-3 Surgery Resident
We offer a five-year, general surgical residency training program, approved for 80 resident positions and to graduate ten chief residents in general surgery each year.
The internship has 33 positions: ten categorical general surgery residents and 20 preliminary positions in general surgery. The final 3 positions are Urology preliminary positions. There are also 5 preliminary positions available for a second year of surgical training.
Most of our categorical residents elect to spend two years in the Department's NIH-funded surgical research laboratories. Participation in research years or two education years are expected in the program. The majority of our graduates continue their training in fellowship programs or embark on academic careers.

With the requirements of the 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 requirements of the Board of Surgery.
