Surgery Residency

\\\Riverside GME Program \\\

Program Director Welcome

Welcome to Riverside!

Residency training is an exciting step in your medical career, and we are delighted that you are interested in General Surgery!

Our organization is dedicated to educating future physicians who are exceptionally well prepared in the basic science, clinical knowledge, cognitive and technical skills, and judgment required of surgeons and surgical leaders. In this five-year program, you will have every opportunity to grow and develop in an environment rich in patient care, educational experiences, and research opportunities. It will integrate a balance of university academics and community clinical experience. We strive to actively develop young surgeons by cultivating our residents’ interests and mentoring them in pursuit of their passion.

An active outpatient clinic experience and regular teaching conferences round out the educational program. Our program provides a rich substrate for the growth and development of our residents’ surgical careers. Our goal is to train highly motivated individuals in the art and science of surgery who are capable immediately upon completion of the residency program of either entering practice or obtaining the most competitive subspecialty fellowships.

Riverside Community Hospital has a highly collegial environment with an emphasis on resident wellness. We are committed to building pipelines of vastly trained, patient-centered physicians. All residents who walk our hallways will receive superior, patient-centered training that will enable them to become leaders in their post-residency careers.
