    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

    The General Thoracic Surgery Fellowship program is a one to two year non-ACGME approved program focusing on general thoracic surgery procedures and patient care. It is designed to provide General Thoracic Surgery training to physicians who are trained in Cardiothoracic Surgery and seek specialized additional training in General Thoracic Surgery, to those who are applying to attend an accredited residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery and want additional experience in General Thoracic Surgery, and to international fellows currently with a valid US Visa who are seeking training in General Thoracic Surgery. This is one of the busiest Thoracic Surgery Programs in the country, with eighteen general thoracic surgeons performing over 3,400 procedures in the last academic year. The fellows will work alongside residents enrolled in the accredited Thoracic Surgery program at BWH and actively participate in all educational conferences and activities. There is also an opportunity for clinical research. We use an apprenticeship model whereby each thoracic fellow is assigned to surgeons two months at a time to gain exposure to the breadth and depth of the thoracic surgery practice. The focus changes from lung surgery to esophageal surgery based on the surgeon. The fellow is the primary resident with the assigned surgeon so that there is no competition with the accredited residents. The case volume is more than sufficient to accommodate all residents and fellows. The fellows are primarily at Brigham and Women's Hospital and will also rotate to the West Roxbury VA Hospital for a 2- month rotation, once a year. During this rotation, the fellow is the sole trainee on the service and is given increased autonomy while gaining experience in a community hospital.

    How To Apply

    The program requires a medical degree and completion of a training program in General Surgery or Cardiothoracic Surgery. You must be able to obtain a limited medical license in Massachusetts at minimum, which requires the completion of USMLE Step 1, Step 2CK, and Step 2CS.

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.

    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.

    Date Posted: June 3, 2019

    Mount Sinai St. Luke's is accepting applications for the Advanced Coronary Surgery Fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year beginning on July 1, 2021. This fellowship is designed to train individuals in all aspects of state-of-the-art surgical coronary revascularization. It is a one-year, non-ACGME fellowship, which follows 6-8 years of formal Cardiovascular/Cardiothoracic Surgery education. Advanced Coronary Surgery fellows are expected to have full experience in all areas of general Cardiovascular Surgery prior to starting the fellowship. The ultimate goal of the Advanced Coronary Surgery training program is to teach the requisite cognitive and technical knowledge of state-of-the-art CABG in all its forms, varieties and complexities. This includes indications and contraindications for the procedures, pre and post procedure care, management of complications, and analysis and interpretation of the hemodynamic, radiographic and angiographic data. The Fellow is expected to become fully proficient in performing all aspects of surgical coronary revascularization, such as the harvest of multiple arterial conduits, deployment of multiple arteries in complex arterial revascularization of the coronary circulation, proficiency in intraoperative Doppler graft assessment and ultrasonic imaging assessment of coronary conduits/anastomoses, mastery of techniques for cardiopulmonary bypass as they apply to CABG, the appropriate use of saphenous vein conduits, minimizing aortic manipulation during both on-pump and off-pump CABG, techniques to minimize mortality/morbidity/infection during CABG, minimally invasive techniques for CABG, robotic-assisted CABG, and Hybrid Coronary Revascularization. The Fellow is also expected to perform clinical research related to surgical coronary revascularization and to write articles in this field. Each Fellow will be assigned one or two clinical research projects to be completed during the fellowship year. These will involve quasi-independent work under close supervision of the Program Director, other faculty members of the Department of Cardiovascular Surgery at MSSL and their extramural collaborators. Candidates for the Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Fellowship in Advanced Coronary Surgery will be graduates of a U.S. integrated 6-year or traditional 5+2 year or traditional 5+3 year training program in Cardiothoracic Surgery who are committed to learning the skills and techniques of Advanced Coronary Surgery in order to develop a specialty practice in Coronary Surgery. A candidate who will be hired back to the institution in which he/she trained and who has the support of his/her Department Chair to spend this year focused on advanced coronary skills would also be ideal. Applicants should be board-eligible in the U.S.; however, International Medical Graduates are encouraged to apply.
