The Loyola University Medical Center General Surgery Residency training program is looking to fill an opening for a PGY3 categorical resident position beginning on June 22, 2020.
Our need for the position is due to residency research transitions.
The Department of Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center is a multi-specialty surgical service. The Department has eleven divisions including General Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Colon and Rectal Surgery, Intra-Abdominal Transplantation, GI/Minimally Invasive Surgery, Surgical Oncology, Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy, Trauma/Surgical Critical Care/Burn Surgery, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Dental Medicine, and Surgical Research. In collaboration with the Burn Shock Trauma Institute and the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center Oncology Research Institute, the Department has developed active research programs in burn, shock and trauma injury, health services research, inflammation, oncology, and vascular biology.
Research funding is derived from a variety of sources including the NIH. The Department bears the distinction as one of the few surgery departments in the country with 2 NIH-training grants to support resident research.
Typical PGY3 rotations include pediatric surgery, colorectal surgery, acute care surgery, surgical oncology, burn surgery, surgical endoscopy and general surgery. During this year, PGY3 residents begin to develop autonomy in the operating room and can function more independently with our chief residents on general and acute care surgery rotations at the Hines VA Hospital as well as at Loyola. This transition away from primary floor responsibilities as a 1st and 2nd year resident refines our PGY3 resident leadership skills as they also serve as the chief of the burn surgery service and ICU, and chief of the pediatric surgery service.
Qualified applicants will be current PGY-2 surgery residents in good standing in an ACGME-accredited residency in either general surgery, integrated vascular surgery, or integrated cardiac surgery.
