The Diabetic Limb Salvage Fellowship at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital offers an outstanding clinical opportunity for one or more years with emphasis on research design, implementation, and publication. Physicians that want to gain exposure to inpatient, outpatient and clinical trial research efforts who have completed a residency in podiatric medicine, plastic surgery or general surgery, or surgical residents pursuing non-clinical research years are encouraged to apply. The DLS fellow is part of the clinical and research team within the Center for Wound Healing and Hyperbaric Medicine. The position is fully integrated into the clinical team with student and resident teaching responsibilities along with a role in patient care in the clinic, OR and inpatient settings.
Previous fellows have presented manuscripts and posters at national meetings of the ADA, APHA, and ACFAS.
