|Frequently asked questions|
Q. Will I be well trained to operate?
A. The surgical experience of residents graduating from our training program compares very favorably with national averages. The teaching staff is committed to training each resident to a high level of surgical competency.
Q. Will I get enough supervision?
A. Our training program involves much one-on-one attending staff-resident supervision and interaction. Attending staff do the lion's share of teaching (i.e., Geisinger is not a program where most teaching is done by residents to residents).

A. A full complement of teaching conferences is held monthly.
Q. What about fellowship training?
