Socially Responsible Surgery is working to create a 2 year fellowship in Surgical Health Equity to train future leaders in research, advocacy, policy, innovation and management who are dedicated to caring for our country’s most vulnerable populations.
Fellows will conduct research at the SRS Institute for Health Equity Research, which centralizes and generates funding and provides support (data analysis, advising) for research and projects addressing health equity.
curriculum and service
The fellowship will provide both teaching and learning opportunities for fellows. With the help of existing program leaders, fellows will work on developing, implementing and evaluating curricula across training levels to ensure that surgical providers training at BMC are educated in the social determinants of health and implicit bias, and have the support and skills needed to care for vulnerable populations.
