Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program

The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program

Program Description

The Fellowship in Surgical Critical Care is based in the Department of Surgery. The Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care is organized to provide continuity of care throughout the course of the acutely injured or critically ill surgical patient. The fellowship is an integral part of this organization and the candidate will be involved with all aspects of the patient's care. The fellowship is one year for Surgical Critical Care and two years when combined with Trauma. The fellow must be board certified or board eligible in General Surgery.

Our Facility

The fellowship centers around the function of the Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care within the Department of Surgery. The Trauma Service cares for over 4,000 patients annually, 33 percent of whom require a critical care admission. The majority of the Surgical Critical Care patients are admitted to the Trauma Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Critical care units which are occasionally used include a Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit, a Medical Intensive Care Unit, and a Neurocritical Care Unit. Time may also be spent by the fellow on the Pediatric Trauma/Critical Care Service.

Expectations

The fellow will be involved with the Critical Care Service, which consists of attendings from Surgery, two residents and fourth year medical students on elective. The critical care experience includes all aspects of surgical critical care. The fellow is expected to participate in resident, student, and nursing education. Conferences to be attended include those of the Division of Trauma/Critical Care and those of the Department of Surgery. Research is felt to play a vital role in trauma and critical care; therefore, the fellow is expected to conduct clinical and/or basic science research.
