The goal of the MGH pediatric surgery rotation is to develop the ability of first year residents to evaluate, stabilize and treat patients with a broad range of surgical problems of varying complexity and acuity. In addition to the operating suite, this rotation takes place in various settings within a tertiary care hospital including the pediatric emergency ward, inpatient pediatric floors, PICU and NICU. The team is led by a senior surgical resident working in conjunction with the attending pediatric surgeons. First year residents are both surgical and pediatric trainees who are the primary caregivers for the pediatric surgery patients.
