Types of fellowships
The IRCAD Institute offers observerships ranging from 1 week to 6 months in duration, in collaboration with the
department of digestive surgery of the “Nouvel Hôpital Civil”. This involves attending medical staff meetings,
rounds, and clinical activitees, without actively taking part in such activities. There is no fee to
pay for such observership, and no remuneration, funding or financial aid is available to the observers.
No clinical fellowships are available, the main reason being that French law does not allow access to patients
and operative procedures for doctors whose diploma are not validated in France. This means that individuals in such a position are only allowed to watch operative procedures taking place in a surgical theatre.
Unique and innovative educational environment
The fellowships take place at IRCAD, a world-renowned Institute in the heart of the University Hospital of Strasbourg. This international environment, with its privileged contact with experts from all over the world, is the ideal place to get the support and guidance you need to write your thesis or PhD.
You will also be given the opportunity to actively participate in a selection of more than 80 annual face-to-face courses, on modern technical platforms in laparoscopy, endoscopy, interventional imaging and robotics.
This is also the opportunity to participate in the development of monthly publications on WebSurg, IRCAD’s online university.
The Institute encourages innovation and research, providing scientific and financial support for all validated projects. You will have access to local expertise in terms of publication methods, clinical research, intellectual property, prototyping, etc.
