The KHN General Surgery Residency Program is a 5-year program which takes 2 residents per year into the program. It is the goal of this program to meet the ever changing needs of residency training in General Surgery to meet the demands of training the modern surgeon. We provide progressive, continuous training to satisfy all requirements necessary for eventual certification in General Surgery by the American Osteopathic Association through the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery with an option to meet requirements in becoming board certified through the American Board of Surgery.
The Department of General Surgery at Grandview Hospital assumes the obligation to supervise training of General Surgery Residents.
Residents are exposed to basic sciences as related to surgical practice and have required rotations in various specialty areas relating to the practice of surgery. There is special emphasis on developing technical skills, diagnostic competency, sound medical and surgical judgment, preoperative and postoperative care, as well as progressive development and responsibility in the seven competencies: professionalism, Osteopathic principles and practices, medical knowledge, communication and interpersonal skills, practices-based learning, systems-based practice, and patient care. Emphasis is placed on high ethical and moral standards.
