The Michigan Medicine Pediatric Surgery mission is to bring excellence and passion to the care of all children. We do this through innovation, compassionate clinical care, education and advocacy to optimize the quality of life for each child. The pediatric surgery fellowship program at the University of Michigan aims
- To train the next generation of highly competent, innovative academic leaders in pediatric surgery.
- To provide a positive, supportive and safe learning environment for our trainees to achieve their maximum potential.
- To select our applicants through process that reflects our commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity.
Our fellowship program offers:
- Excellent advanced clinical exposure: Pediatric surgery fellows at Michigan see an unusually wide spectrum of cases in our high-volume academic medical center, which includes C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, a major referral center for children in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. Fellows gain expertise in all aspects of the discipline, including perinatal care, thoracic cases, minimally invasive surgery, oncology, neonatal, and fetal medicine. This experience includes a significant portion of unusual and complex cases, including from our Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment Center.
- Diverse formal training: The U-M Department of Surgery is a recognized leader in advanced techniques and technologies taught to fellows through a series of formal training sessions. These include: laparoscopy, da Vinci Surgical System robot, ECMO, and advanced ventilator support for newborns.
- Interdisciplinary learning: Because our case mix includes the most complex pediatric surgical cases, we routinely collaborate with colleagues in vascular, transplant, otolaryngology, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, urology, and plastic surgery. This cross-pollination enhances fellows’ training experience and inspires creative academic engagement as your interests and goals evolve.
