Calling all Chief Orthopedic and Neurological Surgery Residents

Calling all Chief Orthopedic and Neurological Surgery Residents
SpineSearch is excited about a unique recruitment project, and thrilled to be partnering with a highly esteemed orthopedic teaching facility in the southern US to refer PGY5 orthopedic surgery residents, chief neurosurgery residents, general orthopedic surgery fellows and attending orthopedic surgeons to attend an ACMGE accredited spine fellowship program to commence August 2012.
The fellowship offers physicians the opportunity to train in an academic environment that functions as a private clinic. Over 10 faculty surgeons in the institute treat degenerative, spinal deformities and traumatic injuries to the spine. The setting and environment are also conducive to learning the business aspects of starting and running a practice.
This opportunity is also open to International Medical Graduates who have completed a minimum of 2 years of consecutive post-graduate training in the US at an ACGME accredited program (typically Fellowships) in an orthopedic surgery specialty. Valid ECFMG, completion and pass scores on all three USMLE exams also required.
The institute is offering a compensation package in the range of 80K, depending on the amount of shared ER call taken, in addition to 10 days paid vacation. Further, 8 paid days are offered for CME and to attend conferences.
The facility is located in a charming southern town, with warm weather and a low cost of living. It is an easy commute to major metropolitan areas, has excellent school systems and a variety of activities to pursue. A 6-month program is also being offered for attending orthopedic surgeons who are looking to add spine to their practice.
