General Surgery Residency


Mara Additon, 2013 Intern

We offer a five-year, non-pyramidal general surgical residency training program, approved for 68 resident positions and to graduate nine chief residents in general surgery each year. The internship has twenty-eight positions: nine categorical general surgery residents and seventeen preliminary positions in general surgery for individuals preparing for a residency in another discipline. The final two positions are Urology preliminary positions. There are also two preliminary positions available for a second clinical year of surgical training. Approximately half of our categorical residents elect to spend two years in the Department's NIH-funded surgical research laboratories. Approximately 60% of our graduates continue their training in fellowship programs or embark on academic careers.


Teamwork in the Operating RoomWith 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 assure that each resident receives a uniform experience to fulfill the specific requirements of the American Board of Surgery.
