Faculty

The advantage of a program such as Abington – Jefferson Health is the close, often one-to-one relationship between residents and attending surgeons. All cases are performed by Abington Hospital general surgery residents as there are no fellows in training. All of the attending surgeons are board-certified in their specialties, and most hold teaching appointments at Drexel University and Temple University Schools of Medicine. All are dedicated to resident education.
