The Vattikuti Foundation is pleased to announce two exciting new Fellowship opportunities in Robotic Surgery at one of India’s leading hospitals. The deadline for Applications has been extended until Monday, February 19, 2018.
Both Fellowships are exclusively in robotic surgery. Those who are likely to have access to surgical robots upon completion of the Fellowship are encouraged to apply:
1) Vattikuti Robotic Gynaecological Oncology Fellowship: MCI recognized postgraduate degree in Gynecology with minimum three years of working experience in Department or Division of Gynae oncology or MCh Gynecologic Oncology. Candidates with relevant super specialties will be preferred.
2) Robotic Head & Neck Surgery (ENT): Recognized postgraduate degree in Surgical Oncology or ENT required.
The objective of the Vattikuti Foundation Fellowship Program is to create highly trained Indian surgeons in the field of robotic surgery by providing these one-year Fellowships. The intent is that when the Fellowships conclude, these surgeons will be able to undertake robotic surgery in their chosen field independently and will have met the requirements to earn Intuitive Surgical certification on the da Vinci Surgical System. Another aspect of these Fellowships is to advance the academic research abilities of our Fellows. Besides intensive specialty-specific robotic surgery training, programs include: participation in the Vattikuti Collective Quality Initiative robotic surgery database program; attendance at Robotic Surgeons Council of India meetings; travel to one approved International specialty conference during the second half of a Fellowship- provided that the Fellow has an accepted abstract for presentation; and other Vattikuti Foundation organized robotic surgeons opportunities. Vattikuti Fellows will receive a stipend of 1.15 Lakh/month. The Fellowships will be rigorously monitored and underperforming Fellows will not be allowed to complete the Fellowship.
Please note: This is a highly competitive program.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY FEBRUARY 19, 2018.
