The craniofacial surgery fellowship, which is accredited by ACGME, is a joint program between the Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the University of Maryland Shock Trauma. The fellowship is a one-year program for surgeons who have completed a plastic surgery residency. One fellow is accepted per year. Typically, 12 to 15 people apply.
The goal of the craniofacial surgery fellowship is to provide the fellow with experience in the practice and techniques of facial reconstructive and plastic surgery. The fellow will work with surgeons in Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the University of Maryland Shock Trauma, located in Baltimore, Maryland. When the fellow completes the one-year program, he or she will be experienced in the full range of craniofacial surgeries, including the face, jaw, and neck.
Candidates for this fellowship must be board eligible at the beginning of the fellowship in one of the prerequisite specialties specified by the ACGME, such as plastic surgery.
