The ECMO Research Fellow will work within the Department of Surgery’s Division of Pediatric Surgery at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA).The rapid proliferation and adoption of extracorporeal therapies is driving a concomitant demand for professionals with greater experience with these technologies than they normally receive during a subspecialty fellowship in pediatrics or pediatric surgery. The objective of the program is to train pediatric subspecialists (intensivists, neonatologists, pediatric surgeons) in the principles and practice of different extracorporeal support modalities, including extracorporeal membrane oxygenation or ECMO (veno-venous and veno-arterial), ventricular assist devices, and extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal (ECCO2R) for cardiac and respiratory disease. When they finish the training graduates of the fellowship will possess the competencies to immediately join a high-functioning ECMO team at any leading children’s hospital or start a new ECMO program from scratch at an institution wanting to establish one.   The 1-year training program is structured as a non ACGME clinical fellowship. Approved trainees are appointed as Clinical Instructors in the Department of Pediatrics or Pediatric Surgery at Emory University School of Medicine, and provide attending-level coverage within their respective disciplines (pediatric critical care, neonatology, or pediatric surgery) during 6-10 weeks of their year. ECMO volumes are large at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, with approximately 60 cases per year. For comparison, the median number of ECMO cases at a center across the United States is 8. With such a large volume of cases, this will not substantially impact the educational opportunities of other learners.   The fellowship is designed to be tailored to the particular needs of our trainees. Our inaugural fellow is to be a pediatric intensivist. She will receive a broad-based training that includes rotations within the cardiac, neonatal, and pediatric ICUs, instruction in priming, maintenance and troubleshooting of extracorporeal circuits, training in renal and liver replacement therapies, transfusion medicine, relevant imaging technologies, and supervising the medical component of cannulations.   General Qualifications: • Candidates must have completed an ACGME surgery residency and be eligible for an unrestricted medical license to practice in the State of Georgia. • Must possess or qualify for a valid controlled Substance Registration Drug Enforcement Administration Certificate.
