Joint General Surgery & Thoracic Surgery Residency Program/Pathway (4-3)
In this program a resident in the NYU General Surgery Program applies for the Joint 4-3 General Surgery & Thoracic Surgery Residency Program in his/her R-3 year. Both programs must approve the application.

The resident chosen for the joint program must spend 5 months in general surgery and 7 months in cardiothoracic surgery during his/her 4th year of residency; in the 5th year the resident will spend 5 months in cardiothoracic surgery and 7 months in general surgery. This has been outlined and approved by both the General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery RRC’s. In the combined 4th and 5th year the resident is assigned to a total 12 month period of thoracic surgery training that takes place between November to November of the resident’s 4th and 5th year of training.  The rotations and goals are similar to those of R6 rotations in the traditional 5 + 3 program/pathway.

The resident then completes two additional years of thoracic surgery training, again similar to the last two years of training in the traditional 5+3 pathway. Flexibility in exposure and the ability of the resident to apply for ABTS certification as “Cardiothoracic Track” or “Thoracic Track” are identical to those of the available and required in the Traditional 5+ 3 pathway. Again, the resident must notify the program director if he/she desires a “Thoracic Track” prior to the last 18 months of training. It should be noted that the 4-3 joint program resident is “classified” as a categorical general surgery resident on the surgery roster in WebADS during PGY 1-5 and as a thoracic resident for PGY 6 & 7, as outlined by the General Surgery and Thoracic Surgery RRC’s
