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.

The mission of our General Surgery residency training 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 455-bed, acute care, not-for-profit teaching hospital which provides compassionate care on our main campus in Oceanside, plus nine other satellite facilities in the region.. As a General Surgery Resident, you will fully benefit from the intimate and collegial environment while gaining exposure to cutting edge medicine.
