Pediatric Surgery Fellowship Program

Surgical team hands together

The Pediatric Surgery Fellowship at Children's Wisconsin is a two-year clinical training program fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The Program began selecting residents for training in 2002 and annually seeks candidates from diverse backgrounds who are eager and qualified to pursue a career in pediatric surgery. The ultimate goal of the program is to provide the mentoring and training necessary to develop expertise in the diagnostic, operative and perioperative care for children with congenital and acquired anomalies and diseases in the pediatric age group. The scope of the training is broad, with a curriculum that includes comprehensive coverage of the scientific principles that form the basis for the practice of pediatric surgery - from prenatal assessment to young adulthood. The intensive two-year clinical experience offers structured operative and perioperative management of infants, children, and adolescents with problems managed in the contemporary practice of general and thoracic pediatric surgery. The clinical experience encompasses newborn general and thoracic surgery, congenital anomalies, pediatric trauma, burns, critical care, surgical oncology, GI diseases, and the entire spectrum of abdominal, non-cardiac thoracic, urologic, and other clinical problems that fall within the scope of practice for pediatric surgery in the United States. The division supports a Level 1 pediatric trauma program verified by the American College of Surgeons and a busy pediatric burn program. The faculty members in the division include 13 board-certified pediatric surgeons in a single practice group who practice principally at the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI. The fellowship is a two-year clinical endeavor where trainees spend their entire experience at that single facility with tailored elective opportunities to suit the fellow's career goals and needs.
