Surgery

The Flushing Hospital Medical Center General Surgery Residency Program is an active five-year program accredited by the ACGME that provides residents with a broad experience in surgery. The program is well rounded with an excellent balance of clinical training, structured education, and research opportunities.  The main goal is to prepare residents for a career in community surgical practice, research, academic surgery, or post-residency fellowship training.  There are four residents at each level and currently 20 approved categorical positions.

 

Residents participate in scheduled teaching conferences, including a weekly Mortality/Morbidity conference, Tumor Board, GI conference, Journal Club, Critical Care Lectures, basic science lectures, weekly quizzes and a daily Chairman’s sign-in/critique meeting where patient management is discussed.

All residents are required to complete scholarly activity on project of their choosing.  Each resident works with a faculty mentor to develop the protocol, conduct the study and provide the final analysis.  Residents present their work at national meetings and are published in numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals.
