The General Surgery Residency at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St Luke’s refers to the residency programs located at our two hospitals on the West Side. Our mission is to help our residents develop the knowledge and skills to lead surgery into the 21st century. The educational program continually evolves to provide you with an outstanding experience, while delivering the highest quality of medical care to our patients. We offer our trainees broad clinical experience, innovative research opportunities, and an excellent quality of life during residency.
Our Surgery Residency Training Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The Department of Surgery offers both categorical and preliminary training programs under two separate match numbers. The five-year categorical program leads to certification by the American Board of Surgery.
The majority of training takes place at two of our Manhattan hospitals -- Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s -- providing a variety of experiences with a diverse patient population. In addition, there are one-month rotations at The Mount Sinai Hospital in transplantation and pediatric surgery.
