Education & Training at Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine
and Boston Medical Center
The Department of Surgery offers residents, fellows, and students a unique educational experience in a collegial environment that enables each individual to reach their full potential. Our faculty, trainees, and staff hail from all regions of the nation and the globe, and from all walks of life, reflecting the wonderful diversity of the world in which we live and the patients we care for.
Boston Medical Center (BMC), a 514-bed hospital, is the primary teaching hospital of the Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine. BMC, the largest safety-net hospital in New England, provides the full spectrum of adult and pediatric care, from family medicine to advanced surgical and medical specialty care. Our patient population provides a robust educational opportunity in the setting of an urban hospital that is at the forefront of awareness of the social determinants of disease. BMC has a history of tackling these disparities through programs that have been nationally recognized.
Our patients and trainees inspire us every day, and our program is constantly evolving as we provide the next generation of surgeons with the skills and depth of experience required to become outstanding general surgeons or surgical specialists.
At BMC, we’re 6,000-strong, built on respect, and powered by empathy.
