Training Future Surgical Leaders
The Department of Surgery at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a community of 170 clinical and research faculty, with more than 100 surgical residents and clinical fellows in our acclaimed training programs.
“Knowingly or unknowingly the young physician accepts responsibilities and obligations not equaled by those entering any other profession; responsibilities for the maintenance of high moral and ethical standards in his relation to his associates, to the public he serves, and to the community in which he lives.”
Leland McKittrick, MD (1893-1978)
Chief of Surgery, New England Deaconess Hospital
Chair, Council of Medical Education, AMA
The Department of Surgery's residency and fellowship programs produce the country's future surgical leaders. Clinical excellence is the foundation upon which that leadership is built, and our residency and fellowship programs endeavor to provide both extensive technical and cognitive expertise in a variety of settings of graded supervision. All members of the housestaff hold academic appointments as Clinical Fellows in Surgery at Harvard Medical School.
