The Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center is offering a twelve-month breast and reconstructive microsurgery training position. The experience will provide a highly focused year with graduated responsibility in all aspects of breast and microsurgery. The experience will provide comprehensive independent clinical management with involvement by faculty from UT Southwestern and Baylor University Medical Center. As part of the fellowship the fellow has the opportunity to see patients pre and post operatively in clinic, based on their interest and granted they are not in surgery.
The fellowship is part of one of the largest academic residency programs in the United States. As such, the fellow, who often acts as Junior Faculty, will constantly be working with residents as well. As the year progresses the fellow will be able to assume a teaching role for the residents allowing a great opportunity for development of teaching skill as a future faculty, whether in an academic or private practice environment. In addition, the fellow, similarly to the other microsurgery staff, will help staff the residents at Parkland as a faculty, an invaluable experience as a junior faculty helping in planning and executing complex microsurgical cases.
This fellowship will provide experience in all aspects of micro and non-micro breast reconstruction as well as head and neck, trunk, and extremity reconstruction. Flaps performed for breast reconstruction include perforator and non-perforator based flaps. The fellow will also gain comprehensive experience in micro head and neck reconstruction, including facial reanimation.
Applicants must have, or obtain prior to commencement, a Texas medical license, hospital privileges at various private hospitals, and BC/BE in Plastic Surgery.
