Cook County Hospital in Chicago is America's oldest trauma center and sees a high volume of penetrating and blunt trauma. We offer a one or two year research fellowship for U.S. and International Researchers. Fellowship candidates are welcomed into our department with the opportunity to participate intimately with trauma and burn teams at Cook County Hospital. The fellowship is intended to create and foster U.S. and international academic relationships that are steeped in clinical and basic science research. We are currently working on research projects in the area of:

Shock and resuscitation
Head, Chest, Abdominal and Pelvic injury
Burn injury and resuscitation
Burn grafting and hemostasis
Obesity and trauma
Elderly trauma
Gunshot injury and prevention
Public implications of the burden of injury

This is a full-time non-paid volunteer position and a commitment of one year is necessary. Applicants must have M.D. degree and ECFGM certification if applicable. Strong communication skills are required. Prior research experience and knowledge of computer software Excell, SPSS, R is desired but not essential. Our experience has been successful matching of all our research fellows into residency programs as a result of their hard work and dedication to the field. For more information please visit:
