Additional opportunities exist for the junior associate to gain diverse surgical experience: • Two-months of rural surgery experience at Eastern Long Island Hospital and Stony Brook Southampton Hospital, both on the East End of Long Island. • Assisting surgeons in several specialties (OR and ER coverage). Subspecialties include but are not limited to urology, obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics. • One-month of global surgery experience through participation in Blanca’s House medical missions to Ecuador. • Exposure to resource-limited environments and collaborating with local surgeons and physicians to provide much-needed surgical services in the form of hernia repairs, laparoscopic cholecystectomies, postoperative care, wound care, and office consultations. Additionally, to further broaden the junior associate's readiness for independent practice, he/she will participate in the attending call roster for the exigent general surgery (XGS) service, training medical students, supervising residents, and seeing patients in a clinic setting. The curriculum will be adjusted according to the junior associate's needs throughout the program to ensure that he/she gains the competence and confidence to carry out a robust and successful independent practice. In addition, the Mastery faculty will help with placement and introductions to communities that will greatly benefit from the junior associate's experiences. Our general surgeons operate the XGS service that streamlines the care of patients presenting in the ER with acute abdominal conditions. Providing minimally invasive treatment in most cases, this service decreases both the time to surgery and the length of stay in the hospital.

How To Apply

Interested applicants can download an application and submit it to MasteryGS@facs.org. Recruitment for the first class of the Mastery program will begin in May 2018 to start the program in Summer 2018. Number of Positions Available: 3 per academic year.

Global Surgery Fellowship (must have completed an ACGME approved general surgery residency)

Loma Linda University Medical Center
Date Posted: November 22, 2017

The Loma Linda University Department of Surgery in Loma Linda, California has begun a new one year non-ACGME accredited Global Surgery Fellowship (GSF) and is looking to find its next fellow to start August 1, 2018. The goal of the Global Surgery Fellowship is to prepare American-trained general surgeons to be competent and capable of performing the needed surgeries in low and middle income countries (LMIC). The Global Surgery Fellowship furthers the Loma Linda University Health (LLUH) goal ‘to make man whole’ physically, intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually by continuing Christ’s healing and teaching ministry. It aims to address the overwhelming surgical needs throughout the developing world. In 2015, the World Health Organization recognized that the lack of access to safe surgical care results in more deaths than HIV, TB, and Malaria combined and the WHO made Global Surgery a priority in public health. There are approximately five billion people around the globe who lack access to safe and affordable surgical and anesthesia care with a vast majority of those people living in the low-resource settings of low and middle income countries. It is estimated that each year 143 million additional surgical procedures need to be done in Sub-Saharan Africa alone. The LLUH GSF will directly address surgery’s indispensable part of health care in underserved areas and will positively affect the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Global Surgery Fellowship (GSF) is a one year training program for American Board of Surgery eligible or certified general surgeons. It consists of nine months training at Loma Linda University Health (LLUH) in Loma Linda, California and 3 months of guidance and experience at Malamulo Adventist Hospital (MAH) in Malawi, Africa. The fellowship training at LLUH will consist of rotations and case log completion in Obstetrics, Gynecology, Urology, Orthopedics, and Trauma, as well as Anesthesia, Neurosurgery, Pediatric Surgery, ENT, Plastic Surgery, Wound Care, Dentistry, Preventative Medicine, Tropical Disease, Public Health, financial literacy for organizations, and leadership in health administration. The fellow will be eligible to take the exam for the Diploma of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene after the completion of the required modules and in-person session. The fellow will complete at least one research paper focusing on a topic in Global Surgery. LLUH is uniquely equipped for the GSF with its strong history of international service and its direct connection to a wide network of hospitals in low and middle income countries. This modus operandi of mission focus is evident in the multidisciplinary enthusiasm and support for the Department of Surgery’s Global Surgery Fellowship. The fellowship program director, Dr. Carlos Garberoglio, and assistant program director, Dr. Ryan Hayton, have a continued interest in meeting the global needs of surgery based on their real experience in providing surgical care in low-resource environments. Applicants must have completed an ACGME approved general surgery residency by June 30, 2018 and be American Board of Surgery certified or eligible.

How To Apply

Applicants must have completed an ACGME approved general surgery residency by June 30, 2018 and be American Board of Surgery certified or eligible. If interested, applicants must provide the following documents via e-mail to Mrs. Nikki McCutchan, program coordinator at nmccutchan@llu.edu.  A letter of reference from their department of surgery chairman  A letter of reference from their program director  A person statement about surgical global health  Current CV Fellowship Timeline for 2018 Open For Applications 08/14/2017 Interviews 02/2018 Begin Fellowship 08/01/2018

Currently, our surgical critical care faculty provides care for trauma, acute care surgery, general surgery, solid organ transplant, heart and lung transplant, cardiothoracic, neurosurgery, orthopedic and orthopedic spinal surgery, ENT, oral surgery, OB-GYN, and plastic surgery.   The surgeons in the Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery have always been closely involved in general surgery resident education (9 residents a year), as well as research and quality initiatives.  Our surgeons also serve as Texas A & M Health Science Center College of Medicine faculty and are heavily involved in medical student education. There are 48 medical students in each class that rotate at our campus starting from their 2nd year onwards. The Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery continues to grow and currently includes 13 faculty physicians, 12 of whom are board certified with Added Qualifications in Surgical Critical Care. The ACGME approved our new Surgical Critical Care Fellowship in March 2016 for four (4) fellowship positions. We have one spot open for the 2018-2019 academic year. The goal of our Surgical Critical Care Fellowship program is to prepare the fellows to function as qualified practitioners at the advanced level of performance expected of Board-certified subspecialists. The fellowship will allow fellows to develop proficiency in the management of critically-ill and injured patients, develop necessary qualifications to supervise surgical critical care units, and to conduct scholarly activities in trauma/surgical critical care. The 12-month fellowship is designed to provide surgical critical care fellows with an education in the principles and practice of state-of-the art trauma and surgical critical care according to medical knowledge and patient care, practice-based learning and improvement, systems-based practice, professionalism, and interpersonal and communication skills. This is accomplished by exposing the surgical critical care fellows to a broad array of surgical illnesses through didactic instruction in the basic and clinical sciences, as well as education during teaching rounds, primary patient care, educational conferences, and specialized rotations. Upon completion of training, the surgical critical care fellows are expected to integrate the acquired knowledge into the clinical situation to demonstrate proficiency in surgical critical care decision-making, specific organ system support, evaluation of new technology and treatment techniques, ICU administration, outcomes assessment, research design, and interaction with patients, families, and health care personnel. The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship will be individualized to each applicant and is focused on developing their future practices whether in academics or a private setting. The fellowship year is also customized to address specific deficits that the candidate feels that he/she might have with respect to operative, non-operative, and interventional management.  http://www.baylorhealth.edu/EDUCATION/GRADMEDED/FELLOWSHIPS/SURGICALCRITICALCAREFELLOWSHIP/Pages/default.aspx
