The Stepping Strong Plastic Surgery Trauma fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital, BWH, is a unique 1-year fellowship designed to train plastic surgeons in advanced, innovative and multidisciplinary approaches to complex traumatic injuries including microsurgery.
Fellows will gain proficiency and independence with complex local tissue flaps, free tissue transfer, delayed reconstruction and flap refinements. Fellows will be exposed to a variety of clinical areas that affect trauma patients including craniofacial surgery, lower extremity reconstruction microsurgery and abdominal wall reconstruction. Participation in clinical research will comprise roughly the first half of the fellowship, with a goal of pursuing an academic career.
In addition to operative exposure within the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at BWH, fellows will have apprenticeships with 3-4 key faculty.
Candidates must complete an ACGME credited plastic surgery residency and be board-eligible or certified in plastic surgery. Verification that the selected applicant is legally authorized to work in United States will be required upon hire.
