Welcome to the Mount Sinai General Surgery Residency Program at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY.

The residency is made up of a diverse group of individuals across the country, with unique backgrounds and interests, united in taking great care of patients and each other. We hope to provide information to interested medical students and applicants about the general surgery program in a less formal, more personal way.

Resident of the Month


Daniel Bitner, MD PGY-1

I'm originally from a small town in Pennsylvania, went to college in Philly (Temple), then medical school at the University of Virginia. I enjoy reading and writing, watching movies, running/working out, podcasts, and shooting the breeze about random topics, current events, etc. outside of the hospital.

Education: University of Virginia
Favorite Activity in the City: Exploring new parts (limitless opportunity to do so); still have to do more of this before I give a better answer!
Specialty Interest: Not yet decided

At a given instant, everything the surgeon knows suddenly becomes important to the solution of the problem. You can’t do it an hour later, or tomorrow. Nor can you go to the library and look it up.
