Surgery Residency Program
Director: Catherine Cahill, DO
Attention applicants: The PCOM General Surgery Residency Program does not require USMLE. Please apply through
ERAS and upload COMLEX parts I and II.
The PCOM Surgery Residency is a unique experience in surgical training. Combining
a strong academic and hands-on program with the assets of a large medical school affords
a tremendous learning experience for the surgical resident. Facilities such as a fully
equipped animal surgical suite, human patient simulator lab, cadaver lab and laparoscopic
and endoscopic simulators add to the educational experience.
Residents in this program can easily perform about 200 major surgeries each year and
will be exposed to numerous experienced faculty trainers at our affiliated sites.
Residents have the benefit of a large and diverse faculty and dedicated academic time
including daily teaching rounds, divisional and weekly grand rounds, monthly meetings
of the tissue committee and morbidity and mortality committee as well as departmental
meetings at each institution. Residents also teach students and interns.
