 The academic year begins and ends on the following dates:

Program Description

The Program utilizes a 'team care' approach in each of the participating hospitals, a method by which private attendings admit their patients to the resident surgical service. Care is provided by the various levels of residents within each institution, as directed by the chief or senior resident under the supervision and responsibility of the attending surgeon. During the first two years, residents complete a series of required rotations which prepare them to either continue their training in general surgery or in a surgical subspecialty. Throughout their five years of training, residents will have increasing responsibility for surgical care, culminating in their chief year, when they will assume total responsibility for patient care and administration of a surgical team.
