Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium Celebrates Inaugural General Surgery Resident Graduation


LAS VEGAS, NV. (June 20, 2019) –Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education (GME) Consortium proudly recognizes the inaugural Class of 2019 General Surgery Residents.

Now that the class of four residents, who are also robotic surgery certified, have graduated from the five years General Surgery training, they can sit for the medical board exams and upon successful completion, they can practice independently in our communities.

“It has been an incredible journey to be a part of our ever growing graduate medical education programs,” said Jeremy Bradshaw, MountainView Hospital Chief Executive Officer. “The Sunrise Health GME Consortium General Surgery program, based at MountainView Hospital, began in 2016, and has continued to expand.”

The Sunrise Health GME Consortium General Surgery Residency Program began in July 2016 with 28 residents. General Surgery residents are presented with robust, in-depth training at MountainView Hospital, Sunrise Hospital, and Sunrise Children’s Hospital. Residents have the unique opportunity to be a part of premier robotic surgery programs at these facilities, as well as a Level II Trauma Center at Sunrise Hospital where they were part of the responding team after the tragic events of 1 October. The class of General Surgery residents graduate with certification in robotic assisted surgeries.

Following the inaugural class of General Surgery residents, the Sunrise Health GME Consortium has grown and received accreditation for General Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, Transitional Year, Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesiology, Psychiatry, and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The Consortium will also welcome fellows in both Endocrinology and Gastroenterology starting August 1, 2019.

“The significant growth of the Sunrise Health GME enterprise allows medical students more options for local medical residency. As the base of practicing physicians in southern Nevada expands, we will be able to better serve our community and improve the access of patient care,” said Dr. Ferenc Puskas, Designated Institutional Official.

The Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium currently has 153 residents based at MountainView and Southern Hills, and 92 new talented residents will be joining the program in July. Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education received a significant amount of applications for a limited number of positions, and successfully matched and filled all resident positions again.
