Fellows are expected to be an integral part of the Trauma Department and Trauma Research Group. Research fellows will publish manuscripts under the guidance of our experienced surgical and research faculty. As the only Level I Trauma Center serving South Dallas, our unique patient population forms the basis for numerous and diverse investigations. The Fellow will participate in multiple clinical research projects related to retrospective, prospective, and randomized controlled studies. Additionally, Fellows will be given an opportunity to present their work at national and international meetings. The Division targets several large meetings each year, including the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma, American Surgical Association, Western Trauma Association and the American College of Surgeons. The Research Fellow will attend all educational programs of the Division and participate in an observational capacity in clinical activities. Direct patient contact for clinical practice is not allowed in this program. At the end of the fellowship, the Fellow is expected to have a rich knowledge in trauma, emergency surgery, and surgical critical care research.
