Remote Research Opportunities

The Department of Plastic Surgery is seeking highly motivated medical students or residents to conduct remote clinical outcomes research. Research projects focus on topics such as health disparities, leadership qualities, and medical student education, to name a few. As a remote researcher, you will work with University of Pittsburgh faculty, residents and student leaders in the field of plastic surgery.  Access to PubMed for extensive literature searches as well as experience with statistical analysis is required. Priority will be given to those who are committed to plastic surgery and do not have the available resources to conduct plastic surgery research at their current hospitals. The fellowship aims to encourage students from diverse and underrepresented communities to pursue careers in plastic surgery and biomedical-related research. 

To apply, please email Dr. Kacey Marra your CV and statement of interest:
