The Division of Pediatric Surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center has established several training programs in which individuals participate in the broad clinical and academic experiences offered by specialized centers under the division. These positions are designed to be filled by general-surgery-trained individuals who come for one-year specialized experiences, serving as fellows for one of several specialty centers or trained pediatric surgeons who desire additional specialized experience.
The goal of these positions is to enable the trainees to gain expertise in specialized areas, enhancing their opportunities to apply for more formal general pediatric surgical fellowships. For those individuals who have completed training in pediatric general surgery, the program will enhance their expertise in specialized surgeries in anticipation of a subspecialization in one of these areas.
These subspecialty fellowship training programs are available:
If you wish to be considered for one of these positions, contact our residency coordinator, Molly Vargo, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The requirements for application are a curriculum vitae and two letters of recommendations from surgeons (preferably one from a pediatric surgeon). You must also be eligible to obtain an Ohio training certificate. These requirements include a valid ECFMG certificate (if applicable). Check the website for the Ohio State Medical Board for more information.
