General Surgery Residency Program

The Selection Process

Department of Surgery m

The Department of Surgery receives over 1200 applications for our general surgery residency training program.

Applications are reviewed and selected by the Program Director and the Associate Program Directors. Approximately 100 will interview for five ( 5 ) Categorical positions.

In addition, there are nine ( 9 ) Preliminary positions.

Applicants who match in Urology at the VCU Medical Center and wish to complete their general surgery internship at the VCU Medical Center are required to rank General Surgery at VCU in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) for the preliminary year.


Categorical & Preliminary Applicants Interviews

THE SCHEDULE:
Interviews are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. They are held November, December, and January. If you are selected for an interview, you will be notified by the Residency Coordinator.

THE PROCESS:
Applicants begin the interview process on Friday evening. The department hosts a reception where applicants have the opportunity to talk informally with our residents and faculty.

On Saturday we have an information session in the morning, followed by a tour. Interviews are conducted by three faculty members as well as the program director or chairman. The faculty meet after each interview session to rank candidates interviewed.

After the three weekend interview sessions, faculty compile the final rank list for submission to the match.
