The Swedish Medical Center General Surgery Residency Training Program, based on the medical center's First Hill campus near downtown Seattle Washington, was established in 1958. The program is dedicated to quality surgical education in a private hospital setting, emphasizing a close collegial relationship between attending surgeon and resident. The program offers broad clinical experience in the diverse areas of general surgery as well as wide exposure to multiple surgical subspecialties. There is ample opportunity for academic enrichment and inquiry. The program utilizes an apprenticeship/mentor model of training in which individual residents work closely with small groups of attending surgeons and emphasizes early exposure to operative skills.
