Research mini-fellowship during residency is currently mandatory for general surgery residents in Israel. Extension of the research period to PhD track is possible for residents who wish to complete this academic expanse.
Six-month leave from active clinical duties allows the resident to participate in clinical or basic science research projects and to dedicate his/her time to the conduct of research.
The Israeli Surgical Association (ISA) together with the International Affairs Office of Radboud University and the Department of Visceral Surgery at the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen, Holland are offering a six-month clinical research mini-fellowship for Israeli general surgery residents.
Current planning is to allocate two residents per year for the program, starting in July 2018.
The resident will be provided with a scholarship based on Erasmus+ KA107 grants, ISA travelling stipend as well as ongoing local Israeli basic salary for 3-4 month.
Dr. ten Broek from the Department of Visceral Surgery will mentor the Israeli residents and will be in charge of the research itself.
The resident will join the team in Holland after establishing the research subject with Dr Richard ten Broek (Richard.tenBroek@radboudumc.nl) ahead of the departure to Holland. The research project also needs to be approved by the Academic Council of the Israeli Medical Association.
Applicant should contact the ISA research committee chairman (Professor A. Halevi) for initiating this exciting academic endeavour.
