Program Highlights

The Junior Associate will spend 9 months of the year on the acute care surgery team, performing general emergency surgery. The remaining 3 months will consist of 2 elective surgery rotations, and an endoscopic rotation. The elective rotation will allow the Junior Associate to concentrate on a specific area relevant to their career goals. Elective rotations available include rural surgery, MIS, thoracic surgery, critical care, OB/GYN, ENT, orthopedic surgery, urology, colorectal surgery, and surgical oncology.

Program Description

The Acute Care Surgery (ACS) service at Anne Arundel Medical Center provides emergency surgery coverage 24 hour-a-day to a busy community hospital. The Junior Associate will work with the ACS staff, managing patients on the service. The year will be divided into three stages of oversight evolution; beginning with more direct oversight in all aspects of patient care management, and ending with a more independent role, where back-up will be available on an as needed basis. The off-service rotations will be integrated every three months, however, the Junior Associate will continue to take acute care surgery call, as to not interrupt the graduated autonomy schedule. Each stage will be evaluated and discussed with the Junior Associate, to ensure an appropriate balance of support and independence. The Junior Associate will be involved in education and training of the institution’s surgical residents. In addition, the Junior Associate is expected to participate in a quality improvement project, which will result in a presentation at the conclusion of the Mastery in General Surgery year. With successful completion of this program, the Junior Associate will be able to transition to any type of surgical practice with confidence.
