Rotation Schedule

Operative Experience and Rotation Schedule

Each resident keeps a detailed record of his personal operative experience, using the ACGME computerized program. Copies of these records are on file in the departmental offices. On an average, the Senior Resident performs more than 400 major procedures in his final year. In the years prior to becoming Senior Resident, the resident performs an average of 550 operations and serves as the first assistant on an additional 200 procedures. These procedures include virtually all operations in the field of General Surgery, with a smaller number of procedures in the surgical subspecialties.
