In conjunction with the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago, Illinois, the ACS is offering fellowships in surgical ethics to interested surgeons.
Since the inaugural cohort in 2015, participants in the ACS-MacLean Center Surgical Ethics Fellowship have included attending surgeons, as well as surgical residents and fellows across the US. This fellowship program provides the opportunity for motivated individuals to obtain the specialized knowledge, skills, and training required to become leaders in the field of surgical ethics.
The fellowship requires about 25% of a fellow’s academic time, which enables fellows to spend 75% of their time doing their current academic work in their respective fields. The fellowship prepares surgeons for careers that combine clinical surgery with scholarly studies in surgical ethics and will begin with a 5-week, full-time course in Chicago in July and August 2024. From September 2024 to June 2025, fellowship recipients will meet weekly for a structured ethics curriculum. In addition, fellows will participate in an ethics consultation service and complete a research project.
Application materials are due Monday, January 1, 2024. For additional information about this fellowship, visit the MacLean Center website or contact Patrice Gabler Blair, DrPH, MPH, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
