Global Surgery Fellowship Position 2020

Loma Linda University Health - Department of Surgery
Date Posted: October 10, 2019

The Loma Linda University Health - Department of Surgery in Loma Linda, California has a one year non-ACGME accredited Global Surgery Fellowship (GSF) and is looking to find its next fellow to start August 1, 2020. 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, 2020 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 2020 Interviews January – February 2020 Begin Fellowship 08/01/2020

Residents interested in basic science research have the opportunity to work in basic research which focus on defining the mechanisms impairing vascular function in sickle cell disease and stroke. Our premise is that if the underlying mechanisms impairing vascular function are treated then patients with sickle cell disease will experience fewer complications resulting from vasocongestion in major organs including stroke. Our research program in systemic sclerosis focuses on defining the mechanisms by which chronic states of oxidative stress and inflammation alter vascular matrix which then impairs the function of endothelial cells, which line the blood vessels of your heart. Our diabetes research program focuses on how diabetes induces chronic states of oxidative stress and inflammation that activate neutrophils to release myeloperoxidase which binds to the endothelium which in turn, increases inflammation and atherosclerosis in the periphery.

Global Surgery Fellowship

Creighton University
Date Posted: August 8, 2019

Dear Candidate, In 2017 the Creighton University Department of Surgery initiated a two-year Global Surgery Fellowship. “In Creighton’s Jesuit, Catholic tradition, the mission of the School of Medicine is to improve the human condition and transform learners into exceptional physicians who are leaders in advancing medicine, health, and well-being.” The fellowship provides dedicated, exceptional surgeons, to help meet the desperate surgical health care needs of developing countries – you will save many lives. The director is Dr. Charles Filipi, who has 17 years of experience with surgical health care in underserved countries. In the first 8 months of the fellowship, the fellow performs operations/procedures in the United States and is taught para-operative care not learned in a general surgery residency, but necessary in a developing country. Our current fellow, now in Rwanda, served as the primary surgeon/physician under direct supervision of a boarded sub-specialist in Omaha performing 47 vaginal deliveries (6 with shoulder dystocia), 51 C sections, 10 of which were complicated, 4 open total abdominal hysterectomies, many other obstetrical minor procedures, 24 cystoscopies, 3 percutaneous suprapubic cystostomies, other minor urologic procedures, 9 nerve blocks for oral surgical procedures, 12 tooth extractions, 43 endotracheal intubations, 29 spinal and 4 regional blocks. In early November while in the Dominican Republic, the fellow performed 31 herniorrhaphies under the supervision of a surgical hernia expert. Also completed in Omaha was a week on orthopedics for casting, a week on radiology for ultrasonography training, a week on pediatric anesthesia, a week in our NICU with a neonatologist, a two day cadaver lab that included burr holes with a neurosurgeon, eye enucleations with an ophthalmologist, how to train inguinal herniorrhaphy and hand-sewn bowel anastomoses with Dr. Filipi, cutaneous flaps with a plastic surgeon, rapid splenectomy, two nephrectomies and a psoas hitch procedure with a urologist. The last rotation was at the Maricopa County Burn Center in Phoenix where the fellow performed 110 procedures including split-thickness skin grafts, tangential debridement, contracture releases, and escharotomies. Faculty evaluates the fellow and written examinations are completed for each month or longer rotation with a score of ≥ 75% being necessary for passing. The last 15 months of the fellowship are spent at a first level hospital in a low-income country. There, the fellow is expected to perform 300 – 400 major operations and begin to train a carefully chosen local general practitioner or non-physician to perform surgical procedures. The fellow and their trainee keep a Google doc. operative spreadsheet which is monitored by Dr. Filipi and scheduled phone calls with Dr. Filipi and another global surgeon provide updates and consultation. Emotional support is available when and if needed. In addition, 26 board-certified medical doctor subspecialists serve as 24/7 phone/internet consultants for the fellow when in the developing country. The fellow is paid a PGY 6 salary during year one of the fellowship and a PGY 7 salary during the second year. Benefits, travel expenses to and from the developing country and $5,000 is provided to develop a health care project at the international site. The Omaha and burn rotations are altered in length and inclusion based on the fellows’ prior subspecialty exposure and career pathway.

How To Apply

Applicants must have finished an ACGME approved surgical residency by June 30, 2020, and are board-certified, or if within 1 year of residency completion qualified to take the American Board of Surgery QE/CE examinations.

Brennan Visiting Resident Rotation

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Date Posted: July 22, 2019

We are now accepting applications for the Brennan Visiting Resident Rotation which provides one month of intensive clinical and academic experience in surgical oncology for interested general surgery residents. Clinical rotations are designed for residents in their third or fourth year of training. Applications are reviewed a year ahead of time and therefore residents should apply during their 2nd or 3rd year of general surgery training. Residents from ACGME accredited general surgery residency training programs are eligible to apply. If selected, the resident is provided an apartment for the duration of their rotation and will be reimbursed for travel costs. Dr. Brennan practiced a surgical oncologist with expertise in the treatment of soft tissue sarcomas, endocrine tumors, gastric and pancreatic cancers. He was Chairman of the Department of Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center from 1985 until June 2006. Dr. Brennan has lectured throughout the world and authored or co-authored more than 1,000 scientific papers and two books on soft tissue sarcoma. He has served as Director of the American Board of Surgery, Chairman of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, President of the Society of Clinical Surgery, the Society of Surgical Oncology, the James IV association, Vice President of the American College of Surgeons, and President of the American Surgical Association. Dr. Brennan has been awarded Honorary Fellowships in the Royal Colleges of Surgeons in Ireland, Edinburgh, England, Australasia, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and of Canada. Dr. Brennan has received Honorary Doctorates from the Universities of Edinburgh, Otago, Goteborg and the Imperial College, London. In 1995, Dr. Brennan was honored with membership in the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences, and the Murray F Brennan Chair in Surgery was endowed. In 2000 he received the American College of Surgeons’ highest award, the Distinguished Service Award. In January 2015 he was appointed by Her Majesty The Queen as Knight Grand Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit. He was a master educator and remains so at Memorial Sloan Kettering. His legacy of empathic patient care, academic excellence, leadership and education are the inspiration for this visiting rotation. We will accept residents from September through May of the academic year.
