Our fully-accredited General Surgery Residency graduates five chief residents per year of which more than half will typically pursue advanced fellowship training. Training is provided at University Hospital along with four other conveniently located hospitals in Syracuse. Each resident typically completes the program with exposure to over 1000 major cases. A comprehensive curriculum for teaching surgical science has led to an excellent first-time pass rate in the past two years. Our newly opened Surgical Skills Lab provides an opportunity for both junior and senior residents to practice surgical techniques in a safe, relaxed, and non-threatening environment. If you are a student and are interested in pursuing a general surgery career then please take a look at the information we have provided here; we would welcome your application into our Residency program.
