The Division plays an active role in the education of medical students, residents, and fellows at Stony Brook. We have a regular general surgery conference. We also teach in the general surgery residency curriculum and in the Surgical Skills Center.
The general surgery conference, which includes a journal club, covers a broad variety of topics related to gastrointestinal, minimally invasive, and bariatric surgery. All levels of team members are welcome to participate.
The Division provides general surgery residents with a wide range of experience on the General Surgery Rotation (incl. Minimally Invasive and Bariatric Surgery).
The Division is very actively involved in education of medical students at Stony Brook, in addition to students globally who spend time to learn the art of surgery. Scheduled conferences, including the weekly rotation conferences, are provided to enhance the experience of these future physicians.
For fourth-year medical students, the selective course enables them to refine their understanding of the art of general surgery.
We offer advanced training in minimally invasive and bariatric surgery to one junior faculty/fellow per year. This position includes a research focus on relevant topics, as well.
