New York Presbyterian Hospital/ Cornell and Columbia Campuses


Our Colon and Rectal Surgery Residency Program is an ACGME accredited one year residency that accepts two candidates per year at the PGY-6 level. The resident rotates through three highly-regarded institutions for 4 month blocks each. These include the Cornell campus, the Columbia campus, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). We feel the combination of these institutions creates a unique and truly outstanding training experience that is not only modern and technically advanced, but also wellbalanced. We additionally take pride in our didactic curriculum, which includes not only weekly colorectal Grand Rounds, but an additional weekly core curriculum review. A one month rotation is dedicated solely to the practice of endoscopy (rotation offered at MSKCC).
