Resident Life

General surgery residency can be incredibly rewarding, but at the same time frustrating and challenging.  At Temple, we understand the difficulty that can arise in trying to balance the demands of surgical training with the needs for personal time and social interactions outside of the workplace. Our residents are encouraged to maintain their hobbies and interests outside of medicine and to foster and build strong professional and caring relationships with each other.
