Acute Care Surgery Fellow

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
Date Posted: March 1, 2019

An additional position has become available to begin an acute care surgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins in August 2019. The Acute Care Surgery fellowship at Johns Hopkins has evolved to train surgeons to meet the increasingly recognized need for trauma & emergency general surgical treatment nationwide. The one-year fellowship is typically completed following completion of the Johns Hopkins multidisciplinary fellowship in surgical critical care (although this is not mandatory), and requires board certification or board eligibility in general surgery. Fellows function at the level of clinical instructor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, in the role of a junior faculty member with full admitting and surgical privileges. The Acute Care Surgery fellowship is designed to provide a broad clinical exposure to many aspects of emergency surgery. Fellows take in-house attending trauma call at the Level I adult trauma center. The trauma population gives an extensive exposure to operative trauma management, as approximately 30% of cases seen are due to a penetrating mechanism. Additionally, fellows take emergency general surgery call and treat a wide variety of emergent and routine general surgery diseases. There are numerous opportunities for elective general surgery cases as well as bedside ICU procedures.

How To Apply

Qualified applicants must have completed a general surgery residency prior to joining the ACS fellowship. Ideal applicants will also have completed a surgical critical care fellowship. For further information on the fellowship and application instructions, interested candidates should email the fellowship director, Christian Jones, at christian.jones@jhmi.edu.
