General Surgery

Finally, the ultimate report card of a surgical residency is its product. Shown below is a partial list of some of the fellowships that our recent resident graduates have completed. As you can see, our residency really is a cut above the rest. Come for a visit and see for yourself!

  • Trauma/Surgical Critical Care: University of Pennsylvania; Shock Trauma, University of Maryland Medical Center
  • Cardiothoracic Surgery: Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center; The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery: Carolinas Medical Center; Brown University
  • Vascular Surgery: Cleveland Clinic
  • Plastics Surgery: The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center; Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center
  • Surgical Oncology: Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center; Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center

“St. Luke’s general surgery residency made me a confident surgeon. First, the faculty provided supervised independence, which allowed me to learn by doing; and second, it furnished an extraordinary operative experience. As a senior-level resident I worked hard, but I was also given the chance to manage patients independently while working closely with attending surgeons in different specialties.

By the time I became a chief resident I was ready -- indeed, more than ready -- to practice basic general surgery on my own. During that time I was also able to assist in operations with sub-specialists, including vascular surgeons, surgical oncologists, colorectal surgeons, plastic surgeons, thoracic surgeons, even ENTs and urologists. And since St. Luke’s didn’t have fellowships in those fields, I could actually do the operations with the surgeons!

Now, as a fellow in acute care surgery/surgical critical care at Wake Forest, I'm well prepared because I also got comprehensive training in trauma at St. Luke’s Level 1 Trauma Center. I was trained well in critical care, too, since St. Luke's expected me to manage the critical-care aspects of my patients while I was a resident, as well as rotate in the trauma and surgical ICU.

Simply stated, if you want to practice general surgery, there is no better program in which to train than St. Luke's; and if you want to go on to a fellowship after residency, St. Luke’s can -- and will -- get you there.“
