The Western Pediatric Surgery Research Consortium (WPSRC) was established in 2017 by the Departments of Surgery from 10 children’s hospitals in the Western United States. The purpose of the Consortium is to work collaboratively to perform clinical research on diseases and conditions that are rare, which would not be possible to perform at a single institution. The goal of WPSRC is to improve the care of patients through the development of high-quality evidence-based research that ultimately leads to advancing best practice, improving quality, and decreasing cost burden. This is a 2-year research commitment to the WPSRC housed at the University of Utah and Primary Children’s Hospital starting July 2024. We expect this person to fulfill a combination of clinical, research, and academic requirements during their tenure. The fellowship will include clinical call and a Master’s Degree. This person should have completed at least 2 years of general surgery training. Feel free to reach out if you have questions about this program.

If interested, please send a CV, cover letter, and a letter of support from your institution to Katie Russell, MD. Applications are due by March 1, 2023.
