Fellowships After General Surgery Residency

Although it varies from year to year, an average of 70% of our General Surgery Residents pursue post-residency fellowships in the subspecialties of General Surgery (Surgical Oncology, Trauma/Critical, Colorectal Surgery to name a few) or more specialized fellowships in Pediatric Surgery, Transplantation Surgery & Cardiac Surgery to name a few. Pursuit of this kind of training is consistent of the overall goal of programs that develop the academic leaders of the future. You will find below a list of fellowships taken by residents during the last three years. It is important to note that we consider developing a plan for each resident and this is achieved through a mentoring system that is taken very seriously. The goal of the mentor is to assist the resident in making his/her career decisions and to put together an appropriate group of faculty to assist the resident in achieving their career goals. This includes an appropriate laboratory for research and assistance in obtaining the type of fellowship the resident wishes in an institution that will enhance their career.
