The Ross Tilley Burn Centre at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, a verified centre by the American Burn Association, part of the Department of General Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Toronto is currently offering positions for a Total Burn Care and Critical Care clinical fellowship.
The Ross Tilley Burn Centre admits over 300 patients a year and sees over 2000 outpatients. This fellowship is designed to provide an integrated experience of ICU, operative, and reconstructive management of burn patients, complex wound patients, as well as SJS/TEN or other complex dermatologic patients.
The candidate must have completed their residency in General or Plastic Surgery and be eligible to write the Board examination in their specialty. The candidate must have a strong interest in burns, trauma, and critical care. In association with the clinical fellowship we also offer cutting-edge research in a well-funded laboratory in association with the Sunnybrook Research Institute.
The fellow will be taking responsibility for total care of the burn patient. This will include complete medical care, critical care, and surgical care of patients with acute burn injury. Progressive responsibility in follow-up care and post burn rehabilitation will be expected. There will be some opportunity to develop skills in post-burn reconstructive surgery, but the primary intention of the fellowship is to provide training in total acute and rehabilitative care of burn patients. Fellows will work under the supervision of the four attending burn surgeon-intensivists, and will be given progressively increased and graded responsibilities. Fellows are also expected to participate in day-to-day teaching of medical students and junior residents assigned to the burn centre.
The Total Burn Care Fellowship is a 12-month fellowship starting July 1st 2019.
All interested candidates should forward their CV and three references to:

Training in reconstructive care includes multimodal laser training and reconstructive procedures from local flaps and adjacent tissue rearrangements to pedicle and free tissue transfer. This also includes training for hand specific burn reconstruction. At the completion of the program, fellows are competent in treating all burn patients in the outpatient and inpatient setting.
Opportunities for research exist in basic science, clinical trials and outcomes. The division is funded by the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense and the American College of Surgeons. Eligible candidates can work on various projects involving heterotopic ossification, muscle fibrosis, tissue regeneration, wound healing, nutrition, burn resuscitation and burn reconstruction outcomes.
