Description: One-Year Surgical Fellowship Position in “Neuroplastic and Reconstructive Surgery” at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine – Available for July 1, 2018

The Departments of Neurosurgery and Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore have an exciting opportunity for a One-Year “Neuroplastic & Reconstructive Surgery” Fellow

The Departments of Neurosurgery and Plastic/Reconstructive Surgery at Johns Hopkins have created a successful Multidisciplinary Adult Cranioplasty Center (MACC) for which cares for complex adult patients in need of complicated neurocranial reconstruction from around the world. This allows a surgical fellow the opportunity to participate in the nation’s first fellowship dedicated to the art and science of “Neuroplastic & Reconstructive Surgery”. This high-volume, surgical experience is unlike any other and includes a high volume practice spanning across 14 neurosurgeons and one craniofacial plastic surgeon housed within the MACC. Each fellow will be expected to participate in over 100 skull reconstructions throughout the year.

Opportunities for cranioplasty/computer-assisted surgery research are provided in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (site PI - Dr. Mehran Armand) and The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (site PI - Dr. Pete Liacouras).

The ideal candidate will:

-assist faculty in operations, research, and will be involved in the teaching of neurosurgery residents, plastic surgery residents, and medical students

-have extensive exposure to cutting edge neurosurgery and plastic surgery techniques related to cranioplasty reconstruction

-will be responsible as a Junior Faculty member providing patient care along with teaching medical students and residents

-will receive academic appointment as “Clinical Instructor” from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

-have excellent opportunity for basic and clinic research

-possess an M.D. or D.O. degree

-have successfully completed an ACGME accredited program in either plastic surgery, neurosurgery, oral-maxillofacial surgery, or otolaryngology/head and neck surgery prior to employment commencing

-be eligible for an unrestricted Maryland medical license, malpractice insurance, and must be able to be successfully credentialed by Johns Hopkins medical facilities
