International Colon and Rectal Surgery Fellowship 2018

Deadline: July 15 2017

Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (MFMER) awards Surgery Fellowship to outstanding medical students. The fellowship is open for international students to participate in elective preoperative patient evaluations, operative procedures, postoperative care and emergency colorectal conditions.

The aim of the fellowship is to give the opportunity to participate in the surgical care of patients with a wide variety of colorectal pathology.

If you are an international applicant who has completed a general surgery residency in a program that is nonaccredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), you are eligible to apply for this one-year nonaccredited fellowship.
