Research Fellow in Pediatric Surgery
compensatedThe Division of Pediatric Surgery at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, FL is currently recruiting applicants for a funded 1 or 2-year research position starting July 1, 2021 in Clinical Outcomes in Pediatric Surgery. Our research focuses on clinical outcomes in pediatric surgery utilizing large database populations (NSQIP, PHIS, SEER, and others) in addition to single and multi-center prospective research projects. Recent projects have focused on healthcare quality in the areas of appendicitis, pectus excavatum, esophageal replacement, gender/racial bias, gastrostomy tubes, and others. We are excited to be part of the newly formed Eastern Pediatric Surgery Network, a collaborative of 17 member hospitals who conduct innovative, multi-institutional research studies (https://easternpediatricsurgery.org/). Fellows will participate in all aspects of research including research design and methods, IRB submission, data acquisition and analysis, and manuscript preparation. There will be opportunity for the applicant to present their work at the regional, national, and in some cases international level. Candidates must be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident. The ideal candidate will have completed 2 or 3 years of ACGME accredited general surgery training. The opportunity for clinical experience by participating in the call pool is available and participation in the divisional academic educational program is encouraged.
