General Surgery Residency

Inspira’s General Surgery Residency Program 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 American Board of Surgery and ACGME in all index case areas.

The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and is affiliated with the Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Glassboro, NJ. 

Our residents rotate through three Inspira Health Medical Centers (Vineland, Woodbury and Elmer) and receive a wide breadth of clinical experience while working in different settings. In addition to Inspira facilities, our residents also rotate through several other partner hospitals to augment their surgical training across several subspecialty areas, including transplant and pediatric surgery.  

Our program’s curriculum is designed to maximize the learning for the surgical resident. We provide a minimum of four-hour weekly protected time. Didactics are based on the SCORE Curriculum and enhanced by the TrueLearn Question bank. The curriculum consists of senior resident and attending physician-led lectures, grand rounds, hands-on training, participation in a journal club and various other conferences. 

In addition to our classroom learning opportunities, Inspira Health has recently opened the Jane and Peter Galetto Jr. Simulation Center at Inspira Medical Center Vineland. This is a brand new, fully equipped, training and education center with an advanced laparoscopic simulator as well as simulation mannequins. Residents also receive training on the Da Vinci Xi robot throughout the course of their study. In addition, all residents have full access to the Rowan University Library which offers extensive on-line resources. Our research program is exceptionally strong, with all residents participating in clinical research, presenting at national and international meetings, and having at least one published manuscript by graduation. 

Inspira’s General Surgery Residency Program includes a robust curriculum supported by dedicated faculty.
