A one-year position in Comprehensive Wound Care is available beginning July 1, 2017 at the Stanford University Medical Center. Fellows will acquire deep expertise in all aspects of inpatient and outpatient wound care including surgery (plastic, vascular, podiatric, orthopedic), diagnostic evaluation (infectious disease, dermatology) and multidisciplinary management (rehabilitation medicine, physical therapy, nutrition). At the conclusion of this fellowship, the trainee will be prepared to independently organize, develop and run a state-of-the-art wound service.
The fellow will also participate and plan clinical trials within the Stanford Applied Regenerative Medicine Program (SARM) and the Stanford Institute of Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (SCBRM). Fellows will be exposed to emerging technologies in wound care including EMR based data analytics, stem cell therapies, and point-of–care diagnostics. Fellows will gain hands on experience in the evidence-based use of existing wound technologies including hyperbaric oxygen, skin substitutes and negative pressure.
Fellows will be supported to submit abstracts and attend all major wound meetings.
Applicants must have eligibility for licensure in California and be a graduate/trainee in any accredited residency program. Foreign applicants are welcome. Preference will be given to board eligible/certified applicants.
