General Surgery Residency: Manhattan

NYU Grossman School of Medicine offers a five-year General Surgery Residency in Manhattan that begins on July 1 of each year. The residency’s combined training sites are a rich and varied source of surgical patients, diseases, and care settings, making for comprehensive training. Each year we select seven first-year categorical residents for the residency. Additional residents match separately to preliminary positions prior to specialty training.

The residency is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and prepares residents for certification by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). In each of the past 4 years, 100 percent of our residents have passed both the written and oral portions of the ABS boards.

Russell S. Berman, MD, is our program director; Ann Y. Lee, MD, and Megan Jenkins, MD, are our associate program directors.
