Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center (LAMC) has offered an ACGME-accredited General Surgery training program since 1973.
Our goal is to train well-rounded general surgeons who will have unlimited career options at the conclusion of training. Graduates of the program are well prepared for the clinical practice of general surgery as well as for the pursuit of subspecialty fellowships of their choosing.
We offer a perfect balance of high-volume general, minimally-invasive, vascular and endovascular surgery, and complex tertiary cases. Subspecialist faculty members also represent colorectal surgery, pediatric surgery, thoracic surgery and surgical oncology. Your active involvement and early clinical responsibility are integral components of our adult learning environment.
Following our recent expansion, we now accept 4 categorical residents and a total of 7 preliminary residents to our program each year. We graduate 4 chief residents per year. We are fully accredited on a 5-year cycle. Our combined American Board of Surgery first-time pass rate exceeds 90%.
