Jefferson's Department of Surgery provides first-rate training for residents pursuing careers in general surgery or surgical subspecialties. The training program is a five-year program with an optional (strongly encouraged) sixth year conducting research. Our trainees are encouraged to publish and present their work both locally and nationally.
Each Spring the research year residents present their work. In 2016, this group of 7 general surgery residents produced more than 100 publications, presentations, and abstracts.
