About the program
The Microsurgery Fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center offers a comprehensive and high-volume experience in microsurgical reconstruction. The program is one-year in duration and participates in the Microsurgery Match.
Facilities through which fellows rotate include University Hospital (UH), The Ohio State University Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (The James), East Hospital (EH), Grant Hospital and Nationwide Children’s Hospital. At The Ohio State University, fellows work with our seven faculty microsurgeons (Drs. Chetta, Chandawarkar, Chao, Lee, Schulz, Sisk, Skoracki). In addition, fellows work with three microsurgeons at Grant Hospital (Drs. Abouhassan, Minarchek, Wells) and one at Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Dr. Bjorklund).
Through these sites and faculty, fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of microsurgical procedures, including those related to trauma, cancer and those of a congenital nature. In addition, procedures for lymphedema and other specialized operations are also performed (e.g., jejunal transfer, mesenteric lymph node transfer, targeted muscle reinnervation, facial reanimation, obstetric brachial plexus palsy).
Fellows in our program have the opportunity to do a one-month rotation at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital in Taiwan, conduct research and attend the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (ASRM) annual meeting, where our group has previously won Best Case, Best Save and Beahm Best Breast Paper Awards.
We accept applications through the San Francisco Match. Selected applicants will be invited for a personal interview.
