In 2006 the John Jones Surgical Society established the John Jones Fellowship Fund within the Department of Surgery at Columbia University to generate support for young surgeon-researchers and surgeon-educators through a formal process.
The Society's goal is to support basic and clinical research initiatives at the resident level. The fund currently supports the research activities of one surgery resident annually, selected on a competitive basis.
A Research Committee composed of Department of Surgery faculty reviews applications. The John Jones Fellowship is awarded to the best submission.
The designated John Jones Fellow receives a grant of $6,000.00 from the Fellowship Fund and is mentored by a Department of Surgery faculty member. The Fellow is a member for one year of the Department's Research Committee and presents research results at the Annual Spring Meeting of the John Jones Surgical Society.
