The Fellowship in Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery is a one-year program providing comprehensive exposure to all areas of pediatric plastic surgery. While there is an emphasis on the full spectrum of treatments for craniosynostosis and cleft lip/palate, the complete breadth of pediatric plastic surgery is covered, including management of Robin sequence, hemifacial microsomia, rare facial clefts, autologous ear reconstruction, nasal reconstruction, congenital and traumatic hand surgery, vascular anomalies, adolescent breast, brachial plexus, and orthognathic surgery. Six weeks are dedicated for international experiences of the fellow’s choosing, including medical missions and externships. Clinical and basic science research opportunities are plentiful, and participation is highly encouraged.
Fellows must have completed an accredited plastic surgery residency program. Salary and benefits are commensurate with postgraduate level of training, with opportunities for supplemental income, including attending privileges and an appointment as Adjunct Clinical Instructor at the George Washington University. Teaching opportunities are provided through interaction with residents from the Georgetown University Integrated Plastic Surgery program during their PGY4 pediatric rotation.
Fellows benefit from the combined experience of over 50 years of clinical practice of Gary Rogers, MD, Albert Oh, MD, and Michael Boyajian, MD, the three dedicated full-time teaching faculty in the Division of Plastic Surgery. Additionally, the fellow interacts frequently with members of other departments within the Children’s National Health System who collaborate through the Cleft and Craniofacial Multidisciplinary Team, Vascular Anomalies Clinic, Congenital Hand Program, and the Fetal Medicine Institute.
