New York Medical College At Metropolitan Hospital Center

General Surgery Residency Training Program

Our Participating Hospitals

Westchester Medical Center

Residents visit their sponsoring institution during the PGY2 year for essential Transplant Surgery experience. Working with world-renown transplant surgeons, our residents learn how to manage pre- and post-surgical liver and renal transplant patients--recipients from cadaveric and living donors--as well as management of re-transplant patients having presented with graft rejection. Residents scrub into and learn the transplantation operations, as well as traveling to participate in the organ procurement procedures. Residents have the opportunity to scrub into and gain experience performing hepatobiliary procedures during the waiting periods for transplantation compatibility matches.

Located in Valhalla, New York, Westchester Medical Center is a 643-bed advanced specialty referral center serving 120,000 patients per year. It is home to the only designated Transplant Center, founded in 1996, in the Hudson Valley region north of New York City. Since then, the Center has performed over 400 liver transplants and thousands of kidney transplants. It is the largest and busiest kidney transplant program in New York State, and among the largest in the Northeast Region.
