It is designed to provide General Thoracic Surgery training to physicians who are trained in Cardiothoracic Surgery and seek specialized additional training in General Thoracic Surgery, to those who are applying to attend an accredited residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery and want additional experience in General Thoracic Surgery, and to international fellows currently with a valid US Visa who are seeking training in General Thoracic Surgery. This is one of the busiest Thoracic Surgery Programs in the country, with eighteen general thoracic surgeons performing over 3,400 procedures in the last academic year. The fellows will work alongside residents enrolled in the accredited Thoracic Surgery program at BWH and actively participate in all educational conferences and activities. There is also an opportunity for clinical research. We use an apprenticeship model whereby each thoracic fellow is assigned to surgeons two months at a time to gain exposure to the breadth and depth of the thoracic surgery practice. The focus changes from lung surgery to esophageal surgery based on the surgeon. The fellow is the primary resident with the assigned surgeon so that there is no competition with the accredited residents. The case volume is more than sufficient to accommodate all residents and fellows. The fellows are primarily at Brigham and Women's Hospital and will also rotate to the West Roxbury VA Hospital for a 2- month rotation, once a year. During this rotation, the fellow is the sole trainee on the service and is given increased autonomy while gaining experience in a community hospital.

Minimially Invasive Thoracic Surgery Fellow

Brigham and Women's Hospital
Date Posted: September 18, 2018

This is a comprehensive training program in advanced non-cardiac thoracic surgery, intended for those who have graduated from or intend to complete an ACGME cardiothoracic residency. Foreign medical graduates who do not plan to practice in the United States are also eligible. It is not intended as an alternative path to thoracic credentialing, but rather as an enhancement for specialized training in minimally invasive and robotic techniques, multidisciplinary thoracic and foregut oncology, and benign and malignant foregut surgery. The start date is 8/1/2019. The Division of Thoracic Surgery at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School offers an advanced one-year fellowship in minimally invasive general thoracic surgery for individuals who have completed their American Board of Thoracic Surgery requirements or their equivalence. Fellowships are also available for board certified cardiothoracic surgeons wishing to retool in general thoracic surgery and in minimally invasive thoracic surgery with emphasis on esophageal and lung surgery. Outpatient, operative and postoperative management of the entire spectrum of minimally invasive general thoracic surgical cases is provided including endoscopic surgery, laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive thoracoscopic and robotic surgery. In addition, there is expected access to both simulation and animal work as well as research. There are eighteen general thoracic surgeons staffing the Division of Thoracic Surgery at BWH, performing over 3,000 procedures in the last academic year. The fellows will work alongside residents enrolled in the accredited Thoracic Surgery program at BWH and actively participate in all educational conferences and activities. There is also an opportunity for clinical research. We use an apprenticeship model whereby each minimally invasive thoracic fellow is assigned to surgeons two months at a time to gain exposure to the breadth and depth of minimally invasive practice The focus changes from lung surgery to esophageal surgery based on the surgeon. The fellow is the primary resident with the assigned surgeon so that there is no competition with the accredited residents. The case volume is more than sufficient to accommodate all residents and fellows. This is one of the busiest Thoracic surgery program in the country. The fellows are primarily at Brigham and Women's Hospital where over 3,000 cases are performed each year. In addition, our surgeons operate at 5 additional satellite hospitals (South Shore Hospital, VA Medical Center West Roxbury, Faulkner Hospital, Milford Hospital and Kent Hospital) where fellows may occasionally rotate to supplement fellow interests. We also have one of the largest practices of esophageal cases with nearly 200 laparoscopic fundoplication per year (including first time lap nissens, redo nissens/ Collis nissens, heller myotomy, giant paraesophageal hernias, diverticulae, etc.). We also perform over 100 esophagectomy cases a year, mostly minimally invasively, and evenly divided between anastomoses in the neck and chest. Finally, we incorporate esophageal and laparoscopic staging routinely for esophageal and gastric cancer staging. On the lung side, we perform over 150 lobectomies and segementectomies per year many using complete minimally invasive techniques. In addition, approximately 250 Video thoracoscopic lung wedge resection are performed per year as well as many other miscellaneous video thoracoscopic cases such as sympatectomy, thymectomy, resection of all types of mediastinal and pleural masses etc. We are performing robotic surgery for the lung and esophagus, and endoscopic therapies like POEM. We also perform hundreds of therapeutic and diagnostic endoscopies and bronchoscopies using EUS, EBUS, laser, PDT and stents. Surgeons on our staff have trained in many institutions and bring multiple techniques to their students.

Mastery in General Surgery Fellowship

Stony Brook University Hospital
Date Posted: May 10, 2018

The Department of Surgery at Stony Brook University Hospital (SBUH) offers a one-year fellowship in Mastery in General Surgery (Mastery; formerly, transition to practice) in conjunction with the American College of Surgeons (ACS). SBUH is accredited by the ACS for Mastery. The Mastery fellowship at Stony Brook provides recent general surgery residency graduates with the opportunity to hone their skills and acquire the confidence to transition to independent practice. Our program supports the transition to independent practice in general surgery through: • Individualized, hands-on learning tailored to individual needs. • Independence and autonomy in clinical decision-making. • Practical general surgery experience under the guidance of practicing surgeons. • One-year, paid staff appointment (see PGY-6 for salary). • Exposure to important elements of practice management. The main focus of the Mastery fellowship is to provide the junior associate (i.e., fellow) with exposure to complicated emergency general surgery disease processes in patients at SBUH. 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. For acceptance into the program (1-3) and for graduation from it (4): 1. Eligible for certification by the American Board of Surgery. 2. Completion of surgery residency at an ACGME-accredited program in the U.S. 3. Submission of a completed application with supporting documentation. 4. Upon program completion, submission of case logs and completion of program evaluation.
