Inspira’s General Surgery Residency is designed to provide consistent, graduated autonomy to our residents, both in and out of the operating room. Upon graduation, residents have consistently fulfilled the operative requirements for the American Board of Surgery and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in all index case areas. 

About the Vineland General Surgery Residency 

The program is ACGME-accredited and affiliated with the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Glassboro, NJ. 

Our residents receive a wide breadth of clinical experience while working in different settings. In addition to Inspira facilities, our residents rotate through several partner hospitals to augment their surgical training across several subspecialty areas, including transplant and pediatric surgery.  

As a high reliability organization (HRO), Inspira Health is dedicated to the safety of all patients, providers and staff members.
