Resident Experience

Cecily Stockley
– Small collegial program that fosters excellent working relationships between residents and staff.- Early hands-on experience in both the operating room and decision-making on the management of surgical inpatients.- Dedicated endoscopy program that produces independent endoscopists.- Six months of elective time to allow competitiveness for fellowships or time for those interested in community to try out different hospitals.- Formal mentorship program.- Weekly academic half-day and monthly journal club.- PGY-5 “chief year” – a year largely for operating with the goal to gain surgical independence.- Adaptable – General surgery was the first MUN program to declare a change in the policy for no-call for pregnant residents from 32 weeks to 28 weeks. The remaining MUN programs are now beginning to follow-suit.
