Located in Summit, New Jersey and part of the Atlantic Health System, Overlook is a 490-bed hospital serving the suburban communities of Union, Morris and Essex Counties. It provides an invaluable counterpoint to the tertiary and quaternary surgical experience at Columbia-Presbyterian. Overlook Hospital is home to private-practice surgeons across many disciplines including breast surgery, general surgery, bariatric surgery, vascular surgery, thoracic surgery, and pediatric surgery.
Residents in the PGY1-4 years spend 4 to 12 weeks (in divided rotations) at the hospital during which they have the opportunity to operate in a private-practice community environment. Due to the extensive operative experience and great teaching from talented surgeons, this rotation is one of the residents' favorites across all PGY training levels.
