Suburban Community Hospital General Surgery Residency is a five-year (categorical)
program that offers its residents a broad experience in general surgery.
As a well-rounded training program, Suburban Community Hospital’s
General Surgical Residency Program prepares its graduates to go onto practice
or fellowships in both a skilled and confident manner.
During the five-years of the clinical program, residents gain knowledge
of the pre-operative and post-operative patient care with a strong focus
on clinical care, develop surgical skills and most importantly, acquire
pre-, intra-, and post-operative decision making skills.
As a community hospital, the residents are exposed to a diverse amount
of cases as well as pathology. With a recently expanded operating suite,
Suburban Community Hospital General Surgery Residency has both a great
volume and scope of cases. Our academics are focused with core curriculum
lectures, journal reviews, and supplemental educational resources. With
daily interactions with attending, Suburban Community Hospital provides
an excellent working and learning environment.
