The McGill University Jean-Martin Laberge Fellowship in Global Pediatric Surgery
The Jean-Martin Laberge Fellowship in Global Pediatric Surgery is a unique new training program for surgical residents interested in global pediatric surgery, offered in conjunction with the Centre for Global Surgery at the McGill University Health Centre.
This 1-2 year long training program is primarily research focused, and can lead to a Master’s degree in Experimental Surgery (Global Surgery track). Fellows are expected to be active participants in the division research team, pursuing projects in various global surgical research areas, including burden of disease, access to surgery, human and material resources for surgery, global surgical training, economic valuations of surgical interventions, and others. Travel to low-resource settings is optional but encouraged. The option of scaling up the project towards a doctorate exists.
