The ACS is now accepting applications for the 2023–2025 Clinical Scholar in Residence positions. Applications are due Monday, October 31, 2022.
This 2-year, onsite fellowship affords the selected ACS Clinical Scholars the opportunity to get involved in surgical outcomes research, health services research, healthcare policy, diversity, equity and inclusion, and quality improvement. The Scholar will work in multiple areas within the ACS Division of Research and Optimal Patient Care (DROPC) to advance the quality improvement initiatives of the ACS and to perform research relevant to projects within the ACS.
Five fellowship spots are available for July 1, 2023–June 30, 2025, with a focus in Cancer, Trauma, and other areas of surgery. The spots include one position with the ACS Cancer Programs, one position with the ACS Committee on Trauma, and three positions with ACS general surgery programs.
The goal of the ACS Clinical Scholar in Residence Program is to help prepare a surgical resident for a career in academic surgery through a unique, practical research and health policy experience at the ACS. The program includes the opportunity to earn a masters of science in clinical investigation (MSCI), health services and outcomes research, or healthcare quality and patient safety through Northwestern University’s Schools of Medicine, Public Health, and the Institute for Healthcare Studies.
In addition, the scholar will be able to participate in resident educational activities through the Northwestern University Department of Surgery. The ACS offers a variety of educational programs, such as the Outcomes Research and Clinical Trials Courses that the Scholar will be able to complete. The scholar also will interact and be mentored by various surgeons affiliated with the ACS and DROPC from across the country and be supported by ACS staff statisticians and project analysts.
Applicants must have completed 2 years of clinical training, be a US citizen, and obtain approval from their home institution to be considered. Interviews will be scheduled over video conference in October.
