Testimonials:


“Surgical training compliments the knowledge you get in this fellowship, which you get gradually over the academic year. I have to admit that coming out of this fellowship I feel much more confident in my newly acquired knowledge as well as my surgical skills. I was very blessed to have had the opportunity to train at SIU in adult reconstruction with Dr. Saleh. I recommend this fellowship to any applicant that has a passion for the field and who is aspiring at training in a very well-rounded program.”
