The McGill General Surgery Residency Program prides itself on providing exceptional patient care, innovative research opportunities and a robust surgical education program. Our mission is to recruit outstanding candidates and train them to become the next generation of leaders wherever they practice. McGill is one of the oldest and perhaps, most prestigious training programs in North America. There is a long and notable surgical history surrounding us, the teaching faculty is young, motivated, approachable, and concentrates its efforts on providing an unparalleled clinical experience for its trainees across 5 principal teaching sites and over 60 dedicated teaching faculty.
In my capacity as the elected president of the McGill General Surgery Resident Commitee, I would like to extend my warmest welcome to prospective candidates to the McGill General Surgery community, and to all fellow surgeons alike.
At McGill, surgical residents are at the core of their training program. Represented by their resident elected President and VP Academic residents, they sit on the Residency Training Committee where their opinions and suggestions are eagerly sought by the staff committee.
Furthermore, being situated in Canada's lively Montreal, the MGSRC organizes frequent events taking advantage of the restaurants and night life, improving resident moral, and increasing the team spirit. We look forward to meeting you at McGill.
Dr. Jonathan Cools-Lartigue
