In partnership with the American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine (AFFIRM), American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST), Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST), and Western Trauma Association (WTA), the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) is offering a fully funded two-year onsite fellowship in firearm injury prevention research, beginning July/August 2020 (flexible) through June 2022.
The Firearm Injury Prevention Clinical Scholar in Residence program is a unique opportunity for the surgical resident or fellow to gain firsthand experience in firearm injury prevention research, advocacy and health policy. The Clinical Scholar will be engaged in ongoing firearm injury prevention research and initiatives within the ACS COT. In addition, the Scholar will complete a Master of Science degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and meet regularly with a mentorship team of ACS COT surgeon leaders. This program is open to applicants who have completed a minimum of 2 years of general surgical residency or have finished surgical residency. As the Clinical Scholars work closely with the ACS staff and need to complete coursework, it is required that the Clinical Scholar reside in Chicago for the duration of the fellowship.More Details at the ACS Website
Please share this opportunity widely with your networks, as the application period closes on December 15, 2019.
