Interesting in promoting the growth of minimally invasive surgery?
The University of Minnesota, in association with the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons, is recruiting a Post Doctoral Associate for a one-year Surgical Simulation Fellowship that is accredited by the American College of Surgeons, Accredited Education Institutes.
Applicants must be an M.D. and be enrolled, or have completed a residency, in any surgically-oriented field. International candidates with the intention of developing a simulation center/program in their home country are encouraged to apply.
The goal of this position is to provide a foundation for creating international leaders in the development, evaluation and delivery of surgical curricula enhanced by simulation. Under the supervision of Dr. Robert Sweet, Urologic Surgeon and Director of the University of Minnesota Medical School Simulation Programs, the Fellow will be involved with all surgical simulation activities that occur within the Medical School’s Simulation PeriOperative Resource for Training and Learning (SimPORTAL) and an array of simulation research projects via the Center for Research in Education and Simulation Technologies (CREST).
Applications are being accepted now with a desired start date of July 1, 2014 (flexible).
