This program was approved by the Graduate Medical Education Committee in January 2009. It is designed to give a broad pediatric surgery experience to physicians from outside the United States who desire additional pediatric surgery exposure in preparation for practice in their home country.
The trainee would need to be an internationally trained general surgery resident who has completed general surgery training and seeks primary training in pediatric surgery or an internationally trained pediatric surgeon seeking additional experience. To participate in the clinical care aspects of the position, it is necessary to be eligible for a training license in the state of Ohio. This requires passing the necessary ECFMG exams before coming to the United States.
During the training period, the trainee will participate in the general pediatric surgery rotation with our current residents, sharing operative and on-call responsibilities and in the educational activities of our department. Further, this individual will rotate in our pediatric surgery subspecialty areas of colorectal, trauma, fetal and vascular anomalies.
The goal of this position is to enable the trainee to gain expertise in pediatric surgery and its subspecialties, which will enhance his or her ability to care for pediatric surgical patients in their home country.

All training is conducted at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, a private medical center providing 598 registered beds. The hospital is one of the largest children’s care facilities in the United States in several categories: number of beds, number of emergency room visits and number of operative procedures.
The ultimate responsibility for care of the patients is the attending surgeon. No patient is admitted to the hospital, undergoes a procedure or has a consultation without the attending surgeon being made fully aware and assuming all responsibility. The fellows interact with the attendings on a daily basis to go over the patient’s progress or to raise any concerns. The attending surgeon is routinely called directly by the fellow. The fellows round with the attendings on all patients. There is frequent communication both at the bedside and in the department regarding patient management decisions.
The trainee will be performing major surgical procedures including:
Fellows are evaluated every six months by the program director, and a summary evaluation is conducted at the conclusion of the fellowship. In addition, the subspecialty residents are expected to provide formal evaluations of the individual faculty members, the program of learning and the program resources on an annual basis. This information is collated and presented to the faculty in an anonymous fashion.
