Memorial University of Newfoundland - General Surgery - St. John's
The goal of the General Surgery Residency Program at Memorial University is to produce broadly-trained surgeons prepared to go to the community to practice. The rotations are designed to cover many different areas, and allow for extensive community training.
There are opportunities for interprovincial and international electives while training in our program. There are two community surgery rotations, one each in the PGY4 and PGY5 years. They are usually carried out in Carbonear, Clarenville, Gander, or Grand Falls-Windsor, NL, or Charlottetown, PEI. Other sites may be arranged.
The program is designed to optimize early operating.
The average patient load per resident by location is 5-20 patients.
There is access to electronic medical resources.
