Welcome to Flushing Hospital’s Surgical Residency Program
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.
