| About Augusta
Eisenhower is the home to a comprehensive array of surgeons and surgical subspecialists including general surgery, surgical oncology, colorectal, minimally invasive, vascular, cardiothoracic, and plastics as well as other surgical fields of gynecology, orthopedics, urology, and otolaryngology. The core faculty members of the residency program are here with the principal objective of resident education and advancement of the residency program. As such, they are dedicated to committing the time and effort to provide the residents with the opportunities to learn and develop as they progress in their training. All faculty are also involved regularly with scholarly activity including clinical research projects and QI/PI projects.
The general surgery residents in this program have matriculated from all over the country and bring with them a broad and diverse background and experience. The residents develop close and supportive relationships which provide an atmosphere of collegiality. The demands of general surgery residency are high, and the importance of resident wellness is a critical priority of the Program and the EAMC GME Department. A wellness working group has been established within the GME Committee to help provide resources for residents at EAMC. In addition, the general surgery program hosts several social events throughout the year.
◾ Annual Intern Welcome Party: all faculty and residents and their families get together for an evening of fun and food at the start of the academic year to help welcome the new interns and share stories about their experiences and rotations.
◾ Chief’s Dinner: a formal evening dinner for all faculty, residents, and families at the end of the year to wish the graduating chief residents farewell with a healthy dose of “roasting” of the chiefs and faculty.
◾ Holiday Party: a casual nighttime get-together in December to help celebrate the halfway point of the year and compete to see who can wear the most “festive” holiday sweater.
◾ Fifth Thursday: Each month where there is a fifth Thursday, there are no scheduled clinical duties or academics, and the residents are free to enjoy the day with an organized offsite activity of their choosing.
◾ Journal Club: a monthly evening dinner for faculty and residents to discuss one or two journal articles as well as to socialize.
