The Department of Surgery has a long, proud history of excellence and innovation, not only in clinical practice but also in research and education. Our program provides the surgical experiences, educational opportunities, intellectual stimulation, facilities, and supportive environment to promote the personal and professional growth of each resident.
Our residency program provides a solid foundation in general surgery and clinical experiences in all surgical specialties. Our goal is to prepare residents to enter any field of general surgery, be it a subspecialty fellowship, research, private practice, or academia. All of our graduates have passed their medical boards on the first attempt.
We encourage resident participation in our numerous, ongoing basic and clinical translation projects – many of which are conducted with other departments. Our residents publish extensively in various peer-reviewed journals.
In addition to our General Surgery Residency Program, the Department of Surgery offers postgraduate programs at The Mount Sinai Hospital in Colon and Rectal Surgery, Critical Care Medicine, Laparoscopic Surgery, Surgical Oncology, Transplant Surgery, and Vascular Surgery. Our residents receive broad, balanced training by rotating in the affiliate network of the Mount Sinai Health System, making it one of the dominant health care systems in the city.
