Lincoln General Surgery Residency is an ACGME accredited 5- year surgery program based at NYC Health and Hospitals/Lincoln, a city hospital in the South Bronx and a busy Level 1 trauma center. Located in the poorest congressional district in the country, we take pride in providing high quality care to a systematically disenfranchised patient population. Our emergency room is consistently one of the top 10 busiest ERs in the country (#3 this year), giving our residents a robust trauma and emergency general surgery experience. This is supplemented with a diverse tertiary care experience at nearby referral centers, including Columbia-New York Presbyterian, Memorial Sloan Kettering, and Montefiore-Jacobi.
We have a long history of training historically underrepresented and systematically excluded groups in medicine. The Lincoln General Surgery Program does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, color, religion, creed, sex, age, marital status, national origin, mental or physical disability, HIV status, political belief or affiliation, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity and expression.
