This is a funded two-year position for a resident between the 2nd and 3rd or 3rd and 4th post-graduate year in General Surgery.

Fellows will also have the opportunity to apply for and pursue a Master’s in Health Professions Education (MHPE) degree at the University of Illinois in Chicago that would be funded by the program.
A current CV, letter of interest, and at least two letters of recommendations should be directed to Dr. James N. Lau, Director of the Education Fellowship and Director of the Goodman Surgical Education Center for the Department of Surgery at Stanford.
