Pediatric Surgery Fellowship
The Stanford University / Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital fellowship program will not be entering the 2012 NRMP match for Pediatric Surgery.
As an every other year program, we will be back in the match in 2014.
Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital’s Division of Pediatric Surgery participates in the National Resident Matching Program (Program Code 1820445F0).
Our fellowship program pairs diverse clinical experiences with in-depth research and state-of-the-art learning opportunities. Clinical services include:
- General pediatric 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
Interview ProcessWe extend interviews to approximately 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 due to the optional third year of professional development that we offer after the two year clinical fellowship. 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.
Postgraduate WorkAfter 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 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 / operational excellence
