International Research Fellowship, Department of Surgery, Westchester Medical Center
The International Research Fellowship creates a mutually beneficial relationship between academic surgeons at Westchester Medical Center (WMC) and aspiring researchers from abroad. Our training will provide you with an understanding of the principles of clinical research and enable you to critically evaluate studies. This collaboration between institutions will also involve instruction on how to carry out clinical studies, from conception of research questions through design, conduct, analysis, presentation, write-up and publication.
At our state-of-the art quaternary care facility, home to a level I trauma center, fellows will learn from professionals devoted to clinical excellence and researchers striving for the highest levels of scientific rigor. Accepted applicants will be exposed to new experiences from perspectives of our cultural environment and the health care delivery system. WMC shares faculty and a campus with New York Medical College. Our affiliated institutions both regard clinical research as among our highest priorities.
You will be expected to make valuable contributions to our research efforts. You will also grow tremendously as a scientist, gaining insights from mentors and learning to interact effectively with diverse team members. The Department of Surgery encourages presenting at several large regional and national meetings each year, including the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST), Eastern Association for Surgery of Trauma (EAST), American Surgical Association (ASA), American Surgical Congress (ASC), Western Trauma Association (WTA), Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS), and the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Additionally, our Fellows participate in local societies such as New York Surgical Society (NYSS) and New York Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (NYSCRS). Completing the one to two year program will produce tangible benefits; in addition to presentations, you will have opportunities to co-author publications and observe academic surgeons as they progress through exciting career paths.
The Fellowship provides accommodations located on the WMC campus, located in Valhalla, New York, which is 20 minutes north New York City via the Metro North train. Accommodations are within walking distance of the hospital. Fellowships are unfunded and tenure ranges between one and two years.
