General Surgery Residency

Surgical Residency

Thank you for your interest in our ACGME - accredited General Surgery Residency Program at South Nassau Communities Hospital.

We are located on the beautiful south shore of Long Island, just minutes away from tranquil beaches and an easy commute to the excitement of NYC.

The Department of Surgery is committed to providing the best possible educational environment for our residents while delivering the highest quality of care for our patients.
Our surgical residency program is to prepare the resident to function as a qualified practitioner of surgery at the advanced level of performance expected of a board-certified specialist. The education of surgeons in the practice of general surgery encompasses didactic instruction and workshops in the basic and clinical sciences of surgical diseases and conditions, as well as education in procedural skills and operative techniques. The educational process must lead to the acquisition of an appropriate fund of knowledge and technical skills, the ability to integrate the acquired knowledge into the clinical situation, and the development of surgical judgment.  

South Nassau is a tertiary care community based hospital which provides academic center clinical care services. As a resident, you will fully benefit from the intimate and collegial environment while gaining exposure to cutting edge medicine.

Our mission is to train caring, compassionate and competent physicians who will provide quality care to patients whether it is in a small community or large academic center.

In addition to hands on clinical experience, residents have protected didactic time each week which includes attending supervised resident lectures, Grand Rounds, tumor / pathology board, journal club, simulation lab and interdepartmental conferences.  Each resident is required to complete an independent research project prior to completion of their training.
