The Duke Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine program is expanding. An opportunity to add an exceptional rotation associated with the University of Utah and LDS Hospitals has recently arisen that could provide educational opportunity for an additional 2 fellows. Duke’s program expansion to 4 fellows has been approved by the American Board of Preventive Medicine and the ACGME.
The expanded fellowship will have fellows primarily based in one location but rotating to the sister institution for 2 to 4 months of their fellowship year. Fellows rotating to Duke will receive the benefits of Duke’s large clinical service, highly organized didactic program and active human physiology research program. Fellows rotating to Utah will be exposed to environmental conditions (altitude) and clinical case not readily available at Duke including: mono-place hyperbaric care for ventilated critically ill patients, hyperbaric therapy at high altitude and aviation decompression sickness patients from the US Air Force.
In light of the distance between the two training sites each fellow will be assigned a primary location in either Utah or North Carolina however, they will travel to the other institution for 2 to 4 months of their 12-month fellowship year. All fellows will have the same expectations and performance requirements including conducting a research project and submitting a manuscript for publication. Moreover, all fellows will participate together in the same didactic program including bi-weekly teaching conferences, the formal courses such as Duke CBI 206, (The Medicine and Physiology of Extreme Environments) and the HBO Grand Rounds conferences currently offered by the Duke program. This will be accomplished by using the distance-learning techniques currently employed at Duke for the ongoing monthly Pan-fellowship teaching conferences. Upon successful completion of the training year all fellows will receive a Duke diploma. The possibility of August, January and July starting dates will also become available.
It is our hope to have this rotation in place by July 2013 and earlier (January 2013) if possible.
