Residents in general surgery at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital and Jewish Hospital fulfill their pediatric surgery experience through a rotation in the Division of General and Thoracic Surgery during the third or fourth year of their general surgery program.
Rotations vary from one to three months, depending upon the agreement between Cincinnati Children’s and each of the three participating institutions. During this rotation, residents are exposed to a complete array of routine and complex surgical procedures, including:
- Surgical oncology
- Solid organ transplantation
- Neonatal and pediatric critical care
Operative experience is commensurate with the level of training.
