General Surgery


The General Surgery Residency Program is housed at Harlem Hospital Center, a teaching hospital affiliated with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University. The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations

The surgical program is 5 years of clinical training during which residents are able to learn the fundamentals of basic science as applied to clinical surgery. Residents are exposed to pre-operative, operative, as well as post-operative and non-operative care of patients in all of the principal components of general surgery.

The Department of surgery is committed to high quality education and research for our residents as demonstrated by the performance of the graduates we have produced over the past 60 years.
