Message from the Program Director
The general surgery program reflects the mission and values of the Montefiore Medical Center. The four-part mission is to heal, to teach, to discover, and to advance the health of the communities we serve. Montefiore’s values are rooted in our commitment to community health and social responsibility. Our program gains strength from not only from the variety of clinical exposure but also from the close working relationship between residents and faculty. This relationship emphasizes clinical excellence and complies with our mission to train competent and experienced surgeons.
In accepting the responsibility for an individual’s graduate training in surgery, as a department, we are committed to providing our trainees with a rich academic environment. Trainees will have the opportunity to structure their residency training and incorporate research activities that will enhance their applications for fellowships. There are many resources that complement the formal teaching conferences and enhance the training program such as online medical library access, book allowance, opportunities to attend conferences and present research, ATLS and ATOM courses.
