The General Surgery residency program at Morehouse School of Medicine was established in 1993 and is an ACGME-accredited, five-year residency. The residency training program is accredited for 22 residents. There are two categorical positions available at each level of training and preliminary positions available during the intern postgraduate year. As a smaller residency program, we are proud of the bonds of camaraderie built among the residents and the approachable relationship established with the faculty.
Our main facility is Grady Memorial Hospital, located in downtown Atlanta and serving Fulton and DeKalb counties. Here our residents encounter a heavy trauma patient population, as well as many unusual acute and chronic pathologic conditions. Through the Morehouse School of Medicine Grady Surgical Services, the residents gain vast experience in general surgery, trauma, critical care, surgical oncology and vascular surgery. In addition to Grady Memorial Hospital, MSM has affiliations with other training locations for general surgical and subspecialty experiences in both adult and pediatric surgery.
Besides health-care delivery, we are also concerned with the social conditions of those that are socio economically depressed in our society. We actively pursue opportunities to improve disease prevention, access to care, treatment and research. Educational conferences include Morbidity and Mortality, Basic Science, Perioperative, Grand Rounds, and Trauma/Critical Care. All residents are expected to participate fully in clinical research. Our residents have opportunities to participate and present in national and local conferences. We are therefore committed to service as well as education.
