Jaclyn Gellings, MD
As a global surgery research fellow, my research will focus on implementation of safe surgical care both domestically and abroad. I will be working with Dr. Marc de Moya examining a culture of surgical safety with incorporation of a surgical timeout and multidisciplinary safety modules in Havana, Cuba. Additionally, I will be determining prevalence of vascular disease in various regions of Nepal in conjunction with Dhulikhel University Hospital in order to increase education and training pertaining to care of vascular disease.
Taylor Jaraczewski, MD
As the inaugural global surgery research fellow, my projects will focus on improving surgical care in under-resourced areas both domestic and abroad. My research will focus on utilizing machine learning techniques, implementation science, and mixed methods to understand barriers to surgical care in resource poor areas. Further, I will focus my efforts on the development of interventions to improve surgical outcomes in these areas.
