The General Surgery Residency Training Program at Lankenau Medical
Center prides itself as being a “hybrid” program for general surgery
training, which includes the best aspects of a superb “community”
hospital—Lankenau is ranked in the top one percent of hospitals in
the nation—and the best characteristics of an “academic” center—skilled,
rigorous, evidence-based clinical teaching by the busiest and best
Standing side by side with the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research
(LIMR), the Lankenau Surgical Residency Program is able to offer time in
the research laboratory as an option for those residents interested in
broadening their academic horizons, enhancing their preparation for
surgical fellowships or testing their passion for an academic career.
HYBRID = best of COMMUNITY + best of ACADEMICS
The Surgical Residency at Lankenau Medical Center offers the complete
spectrum of general surgery training, including the most advanced and
updated techniques in minimally invasive and endovascular surgery. Each
of the surgical specialty divisions provides ample clinical material and
its faculty is actively engaged in the teaching process.
As one of the busiest and most respected healthcare facilities in the
Philadelphia region, Lankenau Medical Center is an ideal place to train
in general surgery. Over 5,000 inpatient and 4,000 outpatient admissions
to the Department of Surgery translate into nearly 3,000 general surgery
cases, shared by only two categorical residents per year.
Our pride is the quality of the thinking surgeons we develop in
an atmosphere of mutual respect and collegiality.
