Our Surgical Residency Program
The Saint Agnes General Surgery Residency is a 5-year program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Councel for Graduate Medical Education through its Residency Review Committee in Surgery. This academically oriented, community based, university affiliated residency program is the second oldest surgical residency. Residents are offered a broad-based surgical experience with exposure not only to the field of greater general surgery, but also to all the surgical specialties.
The department has an active program in both basic and advanced laparoscopic surgery. Saint Agnes Hospital has centers of excellence in oncology, orthopedic surgery, and bariatric surgery. Our Surgical Oncology Division is the leader in the treatment of advanced intra-abdominal malignancies, with a national referral base. The program receives referrals from some of the most highly respected university hospitals and clinics in the world. There is extensive experience in managing the critically ill surgical patient. There are also rotations in burn management, trauma, transplant and gastrointestinal endoscopy.
The educational experience at Saint Agnes Hospital is complemented by rotations at the Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Maryland Medical Center.
"I have found Saint Agnes to be a great university-affiliated community program with a friendly work environment. I’ve had and have treated seriously ill patients. Our program ensures we have the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in patient care while at the same time making sure we still have a life outside the hospital."

"Residents imageI like that being in a community hospital setting we have the opportunity to work in different surgical sub-specialties.
I also find that we are truly mentored in a mutually respectful fashion. The attending physicians value our opinion and treat us as professionals."
