Surgery (General)

General Surgery Residency Program

The Saint Barnabas Medical Center General Surgery Program is committed to offering our residents the best in surgical education. Our trainees develop life-long habits of learning and self-education along with excellent technical skills, professional judgment, compassion and humility.

The strengths of our program are:

  • A strong balance of academic and clinical experiences
  • High success rate of our graduates in obtaining their desired fellowships
  • Emphasis on scholarly activity which enhances professional options for our trainees
  • Our commitment to providing the environment, mentoring and experience required for our residents to achieve success in their profession
  • We have assembled an excellent faculty and designed a comprehensive basic science and clinical curriculum to help our residents meet their goals of surgical excellence.

    Although research leave is optional, we strongly encourage our residents to take advantage of research opportunities. Yearly schedules are devised with the expectation that all residents who go out on research leave return to complete their training in our program.

    The General Surgery residency is structured to provide five years of general surgery training. There are four categorical residents per year plus eight preliminary residents (5 PGY 1 and 3 PGY 2.) The major affiliate of the program is Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center (LMC), where our residents rotate for Trauma experience.
