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.
