In collaboration with the American Foundation for Firearm Injury Reduction in Medicine (AFFIRM), American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST), Eastern Association for the Surgery of Trauma (EAST), and Western Trauma Association (WTA), the American College of Surgeons Committee on Trauma (ACS COT) is offering a fully funded two-year onsite fellowship in firearm injury prevention research. The primary goal of the fellowship program is to provide a mentored research experience to support the career development of surgical investigators interested in injury prevention research and health policy.
This program is open to applicants who have completed a minimum of 2 years of general surgical residency or have finished surgical residency. The applicant must be an Associate member of the American College of Surgeons and in good standing with the College. As the Clinical Scholars work closely with the ACS staff and need to complete coursework, it is required that the Clinical Scholar reside in Chicago for the duration of the fellowship.
