Transition to Practice Fellow

Oregon Health & Science University
Date Posted: November 17, 2016

The TTP Associate will work in two Oregon hospitals, Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles, OR, and Columbia Memorial Hospital in Astoria, OR. Upon arrival at the training site, the TTP Associate will undergo a baseline evaluation of a minimum of five supervised general surgical operations chosen from among the following: open or laparoscopic appendectomy, inguinal hernia repair, cholecystectomy, and/or incisional hernia repair. The intake assessment will be used to identify the level of performance of the TTP Associate and to plan his or her subsequent curriculum and experiences. The TTP Associate will share call and procedures with the TTP faculty members at the site for the first two months, including taking call for the Emergency Department, seeing patients in the ambulatory setting, performing operations and endoscopic procedures, rounding daily on inpatients, and taking consultations from the hospital, with the TTP Associate conferring with the TTP faculty regarding management decisions. The TTP Associate will make rounds with a TTP faculty member on all inpatients daily during the first two months and will have direct supervision for all operations. The TTP Associate will meet with the majority of the referring physicians during the first two months so that they can become familiar with the TTP Associate’s background and desire to be consulted for appropriate cases. The TTP Associate’s performance will be assessed at the end of each month and the TTP Associate will meet with the Senior Associate to decide at that time whether the TTP Associate is ready to enter the Emergency Call Schedule as an independent practitioner. The TTP faculty will continue to be available to provide consultation and advice for any cases in which there are questions and a weekly case presentation conference will be held to discuss representative cases. The degree of supervision required will be reviewed monthly. Every attempt will also be made to include patient care and operative experience with caesarean sections and other basic gynecologic conditions as well as basic emergency and elective conditions in the areas of otolaryngology, urology, and orthopedic surgery. In addition to basic general surgical procedures, gastrointestinal endoscopy will be a major feature of the TTP Associate’s curriculum, with regularly scheduled endoscopy clinics. The practice group will hold a regularly scheduled morbidity and mortality conference at which all deaths and complications are discussed using a root cause analysis format. The TTP Associate will meet monthly with the Senior Associates for evaluation and feedback using a competency-based assessment tool. At this meeting the goals and objectives for the next month will be mutually discussed and decided upon. A semiannual review will be scheduled to include the TTP Associate, the Senior Associate from each hospital, and the TTP Chief to assess performance based on the goals and objectives that were established at the intake assessment. This will also be an opportunity to refine goals and objectives predicated on the performance and recognized needs to date. The TTP Associate will learn about practice management issues including billing, collections, medical liability, contract negotiations, quality improvement, and patient safety initiatives from the primary faculty as well as from the practice manager of the surgical group.

Postdoctoral Position in Atherosclerosis Research

NCIRE - The Veterans Health Research Institute
Date Posted: October 18, 2016

The Atherosclerosis Research Laboratory within NCIRE and the Department of Surgery at UCSF is offering career development opportunities for postdoctoral scientists who are passionate and skilled in the study of mammalian metabolism and immunity. Our laboratory develops and studies mouse models of spontaneous and reversible dyslipidemia to explore mechanisms through which plasma lipoprotein metabolism alters hematopoiesis and immune cell biology in the process of atherosclerosis progression and its regression. Ongoing studies investigate mechanisms through which ApoE regulates microRNA-control of hematopoeisis and myeloid cell activity to suppress inflammation and atherosclerosis. Newly funded studies will explore the influence of diabetic hyperglycemia on microRNA-controlled immune cell activation and the impact this exerts on accelerating atherosclerosis and impairing its regression in mice subjected to plasma lipid lowering. Through collaborations with members of the Extracellular RNA (exRNA) Consortium, new projects are being developed to explore the contribution of extracellular RNA carried by exosomes and lipoproteins in the control of systemic and vascular inflammation and thereby atherosclerosis. Our positions will therefore offer opportunities to collaborate with laboratories across the UCSF campuses and nation-wide, providing a rich source of scientific growth. Essential functions: • Develop and lead a project focused on exploring the link between hyperglycemia and dysregulation of microRNA-controlled hematopoiesis and inflammation in atherosclerosis acceleration in mouse models of diabetic dyslipidemia. • Explore extracellular-RNA mediated intercellular signaling in the control of atherosclerosis using in vitro models of vascular biology and mouse models of diabetic dyslipidemia. • Maintain regular contact with the Principal Investigator to advance projects independently and as part of a team in the laboratory and with collaborators. • Compose and edit manuscripts to report data derived from experimental studies. Job Requirements: • PhD degree focused on mammalian immunology or metabolism, with a total of 5-7 years of relevant lab/research experience and a record of scientific publication. • Demonstrated experience with in vitro/in vivo studies of cellular signaling including via microRNA and Redox biology in mammalian models of inflammation. • Skilled with advanced flow cytometry and cell sorting to study mature immune cells and hematopoietic progenitor and stem cells. • Skilled with the histological detection of proteins and nucleic acids in mammalian tissues. • Experience working with in vivo models of cardiovascular disease and diabetes is desirable. • Ability to work collaboratively in a team setting and assist with the training of junior staff as required • Strong oral/written communication, interpersonal and organizational skills. • Accuracy and attention to detail • Computer literacy with emphasis on Windows Excel, Abobe Photoshop, and statistical software required for data analysis and its graphical output.

Clinical Research Fellow

University of Pennsylvania - Division of Plastic Surgery
Date Posted: August 17, 2016

Date Available: July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018 Job Description: The Clinical Research Fellows’ broad responsibilities include organizing and gaining approval for the majority of the research that is produced within the division. This includes developing project ideas, grant proposals, and IRB protocols, if necessary. It also includes the prospective and retrospective management and statistical analysis of several large databases, including one of the largest and most detailed autologous breast reconstruction databases in the field. Although no formal bio-statistical or clinical research training is funded through the fellowship, the Clinical Research Fellows gain a tremendous amount of on-the-job training from residents and previous fellows who are accomplished academic researchers in plastic surgery. The fast-paced environment and abundance of practical training leaves Clinical Research Fellows with a robust knowledge of the current state of academic literature in their areas of interest within plastic surgery, as well as an ability to effectively explore this literature, develop new ideas, and gather, manage, and analyze institution and national datasets to answer novel hypotheses. At the end of the year, a Clinical Research Fellow is expected to be involved in the completion of 20+ clinical research ideas and submit them for publication, many to high-impact plastic and general surgery journals. At any one given time, a Clinical Research Fellow may be responsible for directly overseeing 5-10 projects, some of which he or she will complete during their tenure and others of which he or she will pass on to the next fellow(s). In this manner, the fellows learn to create reproducible and scientifically valid data in a collaborative environment, thereby setting the foundation for many of the skills they will need throughout their academic careers.
