Fellow

In our facility we have been receiving fellows since many years. We started by fellows from Brazil, then Latin America, and now we have fellows from different countries all over the world.

What do fellows expect on arriving to our hospital?

Apart from an extremely friendly, helpful and cooperative staff, fellows should prepare themselves for a complete condensed course including different subspecialities of plastic and reconstructive surgery, with special stress on aesthetic surgery, breast reconstruction, microneural surgery, mainly facial palsy and brachial plexus palsy.

Fellows will be allowed to work in two facilities; the Clinic of Plastic Surgery Dr. Fausto Viterbo, and the Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine, which is considered one of the best Medical Schools in the state of São Paulo.

They can also be engaged in a number of ongoing researches performed at the Experimental Laboratory, at the University, with a fully cooperative staff.

Fellows can register for free at the Hospital of the University, to obtain any kind of medical consultation, investigation or treatment that they might require during their stay.

Free access to the kitchen and the laundry room is available 24 hours a day. Each fellow will be given a key to his room, kitchen, laundry and the port.

“Foi uma honra ter passado algum tempo com o Dr. Fausto. Eu aprendi muito sobre a estética, cirurgia microneural e pesquisa com animais experimentais. Foi-me dada a oportunidade de assistir a uma série de procedimentos na clínica e no hospital universitário. Eu participei de um número considerável de projetos de investigação animal em um curso e completei um excelente curso em microcirurgia em animais de pequeno porte. As instalações da clínica e do hospital proporcionam um ambiente brilhante para acadêmicos e pesquisadores para realizar estudos científicos e experimentais. Dr Fausto influencia entusiasmo contagiante seus estagiários e bolsistas cirúrgico visitando a excelência em ambos, cirurgia plástica e academia. Posso dizer que Botucatu é uma cidade maravilhosa para se viver, com uma enorme riqueza de belezas naturais e uma vida noturna vibrante.”

Daniel Wolff de Freitas

I started my internship with Prof. Viterbo looking forward to get experience on new microsurgical techniques, but I was pleased to comeback home knowing not only about it, I came back with considerable more than that. After each experience at the operating room I had the opportunity to learn about their meticulous way of working, always keeping high professional standards and an exceptional attitude of mind.

I would like to thank to the team of Dr. Fausto Viterbo´s Clinic for facilitating and contributing on such good experience, and a special thank to Dr. Viterbo for his guidance and dedication.

Spending 6 months of my residences at dr. Fausto’s Clinic was a great experience, I learn many new tecniques of aesthetic surgery and facial palsy surgery, have the chance to be involved in many research projects and to practice some microsurgery.

It was a very satisfying experience and give me more self-confidence in the surgical field. I thank Dr. Fausto for his time and his patience in teaching me his tecniques, and also the staff of his Clinic, they made me feel almost like home.

Alejandro Bahena

During my medical training I have had the opportunity to do clinical clerkships in some places as the St. Luke’s -Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York, USA; Hospital General de Medellin in Colombia; and Seoul National University Hospital in Korea, however where I have learned more is in the Plastic Surgery Clinic of Dr. Fausto Viterbo. When I went to Botucatu I had little expectations, but the practice and knowledge I had in aesthetic plastic surgery with the instruction of Dr. Fausto changed my mind. I really enjoyed my stay in Botucatu.
