Pediatric General Surgery Fellowship
Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford's pediatric surgery training fellowship is an ACGME-accredited two-year clinical training program. The program, located in the heart of Silicon Valley, offers comprehensive clinical care and research opportunities in a 311 bed quaternary care hospital that is rated by U.S. News and World Report as one of the nation’s top children's hospitals.
Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford's Division of Pediatric Surgery participates in the National Resident Matching Program (Program Code 1820445F0) every other.
Our fellowship program pairs diverse clinical experiences with in-depth research and state-of-the-art learning opportunities. Clinical services include:
- Pediatric General Surgery
- Thoracic surgery
- Advanced laparoscopic, thoracoscopic, cervicoscopic and subcutaneous endoscopic techniques
- Single port laparoscopy
- Fetal diagnosis and counseling
- Adolescent bariatric surgery
- Multidisciplinary care of vascular anomalies
- Intestinal rehabilitation
- Surgical simulation
We extend interviews to approximately 10-15 fellowship applicants after an extensive screening process. We acknowledge that this relatively small number is a variation on the traditional interview process. Our selection process is approached much like hiring a practice partner. In addition, we are cognizant of the expense and time involved in the interview process, and also wish to minimize the potential negative impact on your present professional colleagues who are supporting you through this process. This year we will be interviewing on Saturday, March 1, 2014 and Saturday, March 15, 2014.
After completion of our pediatric fellowship training program, Packard Children’s Hospital offers eligible candidates an unparalleled opportunity for an individual interested in developing an academic career in pediatric surgery in the form of a one- to two-year postgraduate staff position with a competitive salary and a preponderance of protected research time. This optional endowment-supported "professional development" position frees the holder from the demands of a busy clinical practice and concerns about adequate research support.
Potential areas of scholarly focus include, but are not limited to:
- Epidemiology and outcomes
- Translational laboratory research
- Biodesign and surgical innovations
- Surgical education
- Clinical applications of new technologies such as robotics and endoluminal therapies
- Performance improvement / clinical quality and safety
