Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU)
Fellowship in Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery
The Department of Surgery and The Knight Cancer Institute at Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) are pleased to offer a one year postgraduate non ACGME and non FC accredited fellowship in Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic surgery (HPB). We are accepting applications now for one position beginning in July, 2013.The fellowship experience will be provided under the auspices of the divisions of surgical oncology, solid organ transplant, and general surgery.
The HPB fellow will be appointed as an Instructor in the department of surgery. While predominantly focused on HPB surgical oncology, the fellowship will provide trainees with broad exposure to transplantation, complex biliary reconstruction, and management of benign disease of the liver, biliary tract, and pancreas. Trainees will gain significant experience with evolving minimally invasive approaches to liver and pancreatic resection.
The training will be multidisciplinary in scope. Trainees will participate in the OHSU Multidisciplinary Liver Tumor Center as well as the multidisciplinary pancreatic cancer program. Fellows will have the opportunity to gain exposure in related disciplines such as interventional radiology, radiation oncology, hepatology, and radiology.
Trainees will be assisted with the development of a focused research project in the arena of clinical or outcomes research. These efforts will be supported by a data manager and a research staff.
In order to apply, candidates must have completed a general surgery residency, hold an M.D. or equivalent degree and be board eligible or board certified in surgery. Interested candidates should send a letter of intent, curriculum vitae, and two training program letters of recommendation to Kevin Billingsley, M.D., Chief, division of surgical oncology and director, HPB Fellowship.
