PGY-2 Preliminary General Surgery Resident
pgy2pThe Loyola University Medical Center General Surgery Residency training program is looking to fill a one-year PGY2 preliminary resident position beginning on June 22, 2022. Qualified applicants will be a current PGY-1 surgery resident in good standing in an ACGME-accredited residency in either general surgery, integrated vascular surgery, or integrated cardiac surgery. The Department of Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center is a multi-specialty surgical service. The department has eleven divisions including General Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Colon and Rectal Surgery, Intra-Abdominal Transplantation, GI/Minimally Invasive Surgery, Surgical Oncology, Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, Trauma/Surgical Critical Care/Burn Surgery, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dental Medicine, and Surgical Research. In collaboration with the Burn Shock Trauma Institute and the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center Oncology Research Institute, the department has developed active research programs in burn, shock and trauma injury, health services research, inflammation, oncology, and vascular biology. Research funding is derived from a variety of sources including the NIH. The Department bears the distinction as one of the few surgery departments in the country with two NIH-training grants to support resident research. Our typical PGY2 schedule includes acute care surgery, community general surgery, vascular surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and surgical critical care rotations combined with increased operative experience. During this year, PGY2 residents continue developing their clinical and operative skills developed in the first year to assist them in the transition to increased autonomy as a junior surgical resident.
