Applications for the General Surgery Residency Program are accepted from fourth-year medical students via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and processed through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).

The Department of Surgery will participate in ERAS 2014, and applications are expected to be available for download by the end of June. Details of the schedules/deadlines can be obtained from ERAS.

Interviewees will have the opportunity to meet our house staff the evening before their interviews at an informal get-together. While this event is not mandatory, attendance is highly recommended.

After interviewing, applicants interested in our residency program are encouraged to come back for a Second Look Visit. Applicants spend a day with a house officer, starting with the Department's weekly M & M conference and Grand Rounds, and continuing on to the Operating Room or surgical patient wards.

To decide whether the program is a good fit for you, the best way to learn about our program is to meet with the residents and house officers.

Meet a Resident

We encourage prospective applicants to schedule a meeting with one of our residents. These men and women can offer invaluable insight into the program, including the factors that led to their selection of Mount Sinai and how their experiences have matched up to their expectations. This one-to-one encounter provides an excellent opportunity to learn about life as a Mount Sinai surgical resident.

Second-Look Visit

After the interview process, we invite interested applicants to return to our campus for a Second-Look Visit. Applicants spend one day with a house officer. The day starts with the weekly Morbidity and Mortality Conference, followed by Grand Rounds and concluding in the operating room or on the surgical floor.
