524 W 6th Ave
Description of Program: Shape Cosmetic Surgery, under the directorship of Dr. John Lundeby, offers a one-year American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery certified Fellowship Program. After successful completion of the program, and with the approval of the fellowship director, candidates may be eligible to sit for the qualifying and certifying examinations from the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Successful completion of all the Board’s requirements may lead to board certification in General Cosmetic Surgery.
The program’s training occurs in several venues. The first is an AAAHC accredited two-room office-based surgery center, where the bulk of the fellow’s training will occur. Training with a special emphasis on facial procedures, including rhinoplasty will occur in Bellevue, Washington, under the direction and supervision of Dr. Jan Zemplenyi and associates at the Bel-Red Center for Aesthetic Surgery.
Trainees will be intimately involved in the practice of cosmetic surgery. The practice performs all types of cosmetic surgery, from brow lifts to leg liposuction. Fellows will get direct operative experience in a broad array of cosmetic surgical procedures. In addition, they will gain experience in other procedures related to an aesthetic practice, including Botox, fillers, and both ablative and non-ablative laser procedures. Fellows can expect to attain a level of expertise that prepares them well for entry into the practice of cosmetic surgery.
Training Fellows will have an office and access to printed and online materials for their education. Lectures and formal discussions, as well as case reviews, will occur weekly. Interaction with supervising surgeons will happen on a daily basis with less formal discussions occurring on an ongoing and as needed basis.
Spokane, Washington, and Bellevue, Washington, where most of the training will occur, are both medium-sized cities in the Pacific Northwest. A full slate of recreational and entertainment activities is available, and a safe, family-friendly environment is present.
The program will pay a salary of $50,000 per year for the fellow. Vacation time is per AACS Guidelines. Malpractice insurance will be provided to the fellow, as well as personal health insurance. Family health insurance is available at the fellow’s expense.
Prerequisites: All AACS prerequisites apply. Board certification or eligibility in Otorhinolaryngology or Surgery, either osteopathic or allopathic, is required. The fellow must be able to obtain an unrestricted medical license in Washington and be insurable with the practice’s malpractice insurer.
