This is a newly established fellowship program in a large and progressive health system in Tampa. The program faculty (Dr Murr and Dr Gonzalvo) have previously administered an accredited fellowship program at another Tampa Hospital that graduated 30 fellows. The program has been a resource for graduated fellows, local surgeons and bariatric patients. Previous fellows have received ASMBS research grants in 2008 and 2016 to study resolution of diabetes and NASH after bariatric surgery. This fellowship provides comprehensive training in the surgical management of the metabolic syndrome. We expect our surgical volume to exceed 300 index cases with a mix of primary and revisional bariatric operations; primary operations are 55% gastric bypass and 45% gastric sleeve and 10-20% of the total volume is revisional cases. The overall experience will be 40% laparoscopic and 60% robotic. A large component of cases includes non-bariatric MIS cases, diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. Fellows will be the 'primary surgeon' on all procedures and will be caring for patients as ‘junior attendings’. We follow a Halstedian model of apprenticeship; fellows will rotate with one of the three Attendings to hone specific skills and to master advanced techniques of surgery while following standardized order sets and clinical pathways. The Fellows are on HOME call and do not cross-cover any other services. The fellowship is housed in the Bariatric and Metabolic Institute at AdventHealth Tampa in an inter-disciplinary environment that enhances training of Fellows in leadership skills, business development and communication skills. The three faculty (Dr. Murr, Dietrick and Gonzalvo) are embedded in the Tampa community and have extensive experience of >7,500 bariatric procedures in addition to MIS, laparoscopic, robotic and endoscopic procedures.

Global Surgery Fellowship Position – Starts August 1, 2019

Loma Linda University Medical Center
Date Posted: January 3, 2019

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, 2019. 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.

How To Apply

Applicants must have completed an ACGME approved general surgery residency by June 30, 2019 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 2019 Interviews 02/2019 Begin Fellowship 08/01/2019

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.
