First year Overlook Family Medicine residents spend one month on our surgical rotation participating in the evaluation and assessment of patients prior to their surgeries, in surgical procedures in the operating room, and in postoperative care. Residents are supervised by the director of surgical training for Overlook Medical Center. Residents also participate in surgical procedures performed in the outpatient surgical suites, and spend one half-day a week with an attending surgeon in their office.
Second year residents spend one month on an outpatient surgery rotation, rotating at two large surgical specialist practices. They will have the experience of seeing patients with general surgical, bariatric and breast conditions.
