Midwest Pediatric Surgery Consortium
Amy Lawrence, M.D., will be the fellow as of July 1, 2018. Amy is a general surgery resident at the University of Rochester in New York. She is currently a research fellow at Nationwide Children’s Hospital under the mentorship of Drs. Deans and Minneci. Prior to studying medicine, she was the director of a non-profit organization for impoverished indigenous children in Guatemala and did research in maternal-fetal medicine. Her current research dossier focuses on the surgical care of adolescent females. Specifically she is currently studying methods for reducing unnecessary oophorectomies in pediatric patients with ovarian masses; understanding disparities in the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal pain in adolescent girls at children’s hospitals compared to hospitals that primarily treat adults; and evaluating racial and gender- based disparities in opioid prescribing following surgery.
The MWPSC currently has a 1 or 2 year fellowship in clinical research that is housed in one of our member centers. This year it is in Nationwide Children's Hospital under the mentorship of Katherine Deans, M.D., and Peter Minneci, M.D.
