\\\Riverside GME Program \\\

Program Director Welcome

Welcome to Riverside!

Residency training is an exciting step in your medical career, and we are happy that you are interested in General Surgery! The General Surgery Residency Program received initial ACGME accreditation on January 18, 2018. 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.

The surgical service will include a wide spectrum of surgical specialties ranging from cardiac surgery, transplant surgery, level II trauma center, minimally invasive surgery, bariatric surgery, surgical oncology, and other surgical fields. Riverside Community Hospital’s emergency room is considered one of the busiest in the state of California, thus providing a wide variety of cases. The program and hospital possess strong surgical clinical material for resident hiring.

The hospital is an Accredited Level II Trauma Center and Certified Primary Stroke Center. It has residency programs in Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Neurology and Transitional Year. Riverside Community Hospital has Riverside County’s only Transplant Program, performing more than 525 cases since their opening in 1996.

The Surgery Program will recruit Advanced level positions through NRMP. Applications for PGYII and PGYIII positions will be considered outside of the Match. Interviews will start on January 22, 2018 and will continue until the day before the NRMP Rank date.

If interested in our program, please contact Christine Hernandez, General Surgery Program Coordinator at Christine.Hernandez@HCAHealthcare.com. Phone calls and faxes will not be accepted.
