In conjunction with The MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at The University of Chicago, IL, the ACS is offering fellowships in surgical ethics.
Since the inaugural fellowship in 2015, participants have included attending surgeons, as well as surgical residents and fellows nationwide.
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 approximately 25% of a fellow’s academic time, enabling fellows to spend 75% of their time completing current academic work in their respective fields.
Beginning with a 5-week, full-time course in Chicago during July and August 2023, the fellowship will prepare surgeons for careers that combine clinical surgery with scholarly studies in surgical ethics. From September 2023 to June 2024, 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 January 16, 2023. For additional information about this fellowship, visit The MacLean Center website at macleanethics.uchicago.edu/fellowship/surgical_ethics or contact Patrice Gabler Blair, MPH, at email@example.com.
