Applications are currently being accepted for the Robotic Surgery and Reconstructive Urology clinical fellowship position to begin July 2022. The robotic and laparoscopic fellowship started in July 2009. Currently under the guidance of internationally known Dr. Jairam Eswara, we perform 100-300 robotic procedures annually.
The two-year program is focused on clinical and technical skills related to robotic procedures. The program includes advanced robotic surgery as robotic radical cystectomy and ileal conduit, less favorable anatomy such as prior surgery and radiation therapy, and morbid obesity. The fellows will work closely daily with Dr. Jairam Eswara at one hospital. The fellows will take general urology call. A full time PA along with NP will also work closely with fellow. The fellow will participate in robotic surgeries, including prostate, kidney, adrenal, and bladder, in addition to reconstructive urology surgeries such as urethroplasties, urinary diversion, urethral reconstructive. Dr. Eswara is a world leader in reconstructive urology and continues to develop new techniques. The Fellows are also exposed to a multidisciplinary treatment approach to urologic cancers by developing close relationships with radiation oncology and medical oncology.
Prerequisite Training/Selection Criteria: The robotic fellowship candidate has had to have successful completion of a general surgery or urology program. Furthermore, the candidate must be eligible for a Massachusetts limited medical license.
Candidate are encouraged to apply by emailing a curriculum vitae and 2-3 references.
Applicant for limited license must have passing scores on USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 (or the first two level of COMPLEX, or all parts of MCCQE (LMCC). Completion of USMLE Step 3 (or COMPLEX 3) is strongly encouraged prior to starting.
