General Surgery

About the Program

Image: SurgeonThe General Surgery Residency Program is a consortium program with two principal campuses — Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and Peconic Bay Medical Center, Northwell Health.  Additionally, the General Surgery Residency Program includes rotations at participating sites to strengthen and develop the residents' compentencies. These participating sites include; Stony Brook University Hospital, and New York Presbyterian Hospital - Columbia. Each institution provides a broad spectrum of General Surgery to our trainees and exposure to many surgical sub-specialties and medical disciplines.

The clinical experience of the trainee is under the direct supervision of attending surgeons, both faculty and non-faculty. Training includes in-hospital patient care, intra-operative direction, and instruction at out-patient office settings.

Over the course of the five-year training program, the resident will develop competence and confidence to be awarded increased responsibility for patient care and operative management.  The expectation is that at the completion of the residency, the resident will have the necessary judgment, technical skill, proficiency and knowledge to meet the challenges of a career in surgery.
