Residency in General Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital
There are four inpatient services composed of general and vascular surgery, and the operative cases cover a wide variety of specialties, including advanced laparoscopic surgery, colon and rectal surgery, vascular surgery (including endovascular approaches), pediatric surgery, breast oncology, thoracic surgery, as well as bariatric and metabolic surgery.
Residents participate in the outpatient hospital surgical practice, and junior residents make up the front lines in the intensive care unit, which is run by dedicated intensive care attending staff. Mid-level residents round out their training in trauma at Maryland Shock Trauma, and are exposed to transplant surgery at New York University's Tisch Hospital. Supplemental pediatric surgery experience is provided through a rotation at Cohen Children’s Medical Center.
Awards are given annually to residents based upon the ABSITE examination, and the teaching evaluations of medical students who rotate through the services. In addition, chief residents may be nominated for one of several hospital-wide awards.
