What’s in a Fellowship? What to Consider when Pursuing a Fellowship - Careercast #60



This Careercast focuses on current considerations when considering a career in Trauma, Critical Care and Emergency General Surgery (EGS).  Dr. Fariha Sheikh interviews Dr. Deisher and Dr. Zhang who have both been in practice for under two years and relatively fresh out of the fellowship realm. Drs. Deisher and Zhang offer guidance on choosing between different type of fellowships and offer advice on choosing a fellowship based on an individual's needs, whether that entails a one or two year fellowship, or a fellowship that is focused on a particular area whether it be trauma, critical care or EGS.  They also navigate the pros and cons of interviewing for fellowship in the era of COVID-19 and how to optimize the interview season.  Lastly, their experiences as new faculty and how that ties into the fellowships that they attended are discussed for further insight into the transition to becoming a junior attending.
