Redefining Humanly Possible

Our 6- to 7-year program provides exceptional training for residents pursuing careers in general surgery and the surgical subspecialties. Residents will become accomplished surgeons prepared for a successful career.

We want residents who ask questions, rise to challenges and work hard. We are looking for individuals who work together to solve problems,are self-driven to be lifelong learners and embrace forward-thinking medical practices. We want people who are invested in helping their patients not just get better, but live better.

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is located in Center City Philadelphia, the heart of the commercial, historic and social districts.

Our residents literally helped write the book on residency. 

The recently published General Surgery Residency Survival Guide helps residents survive and thrive throughout their residency years. Co-edited by Dr. Alec Beekley.

We improve lives.

It’s such a simple sentence, you might not realize just how powerful it is. But at Jefferson, this is our commitment. To our patients. To their families. To our community.
