Thank you for your interest in the General Surgery Residency at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ. The “Core Missions” of the Department of Surgery are consistent with those of the North Shore-LIJ Heath System and include: optimal patient care and outstanding medical education. We strive to produce outstanding surgeons who are lifelong learners and leaders in a constantly advancing field.
Our residents have the opportunity to take advantage of the third largest secular health care system in the country. The system is a leader in health care quality initiatives as evidenced by receiving the National Quality Forum Award of Excellence in 2010. Emphasis is placed on learning and growth through its one-of-a-kind Center for Learning and Innovation that includes a simulation center. One of the unique features of NSLIJ is a free standing Research Institute that houses surgical research programs that rival the best in the country.
The birth of the new Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine completes our evolution to an academic university surgical program. The inaugural class for the medical school began in 2011.
The close association among the Department of Surgery, the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, and Hofstra University represents an academic/research/clinical triad unique in the area.
