|Physicians who have completed a prior residency are eligible to apply for two fellowships offered by Hurley Medical Center and Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. As the only Level 1 Trauma Center and Level II Pediatric Trauma Center in Genesee, Lapeer and Shiawassee counties – and as Michigan’s northernmost facility – Hurley’s Trauma Center treats about 1,700 patients per year from across the state. As a teaching hospital, fellows gain academic leadership skills that can prepare them for the next step in their careers.
1-YEAR TRAUMA RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
This fellowship is useful for physicians who want to gain experience in designing and implementing research studies, as well as publishing and presenting findings in scientific journals or at professional conference. The candidate must have completed a residency training program but does not have to have prior surgical experience, as the focus is on academic skills, such as research, teaching, medical students, and residents, and improving quality of care. Skills are transferable to any physician specialty. Faculty appointments are available from MSU-CHM.
1-YEAR TRAUMA SURGERY FELLOWSHIP
This fellowship is useful for those who have completed a surgical residency and who want to take their skills to the next level. It is designed to train surgeons in the care of the critically ill and injured surgical patient, as well as to develop competence in system organization. The fellow also can develop academic skills by becoming an Advanced Trauma Life Support Instructor; training resident physicians, medical students, physician assistants and nurse practitioners; and by participating in ongoing research and performance improvement projects.
