University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics is a 566-bed facility that ranks among the finest academic medical centers in the United States. Frequently cited in publications listing the nation’s best health care providers, UW Hospital and Clinics is recognized as a national leader in fields such as cancer treatment, pediatrics, ophthalmology, surgical specialties and organ transplantation. UW Hospital and Clinics is independent and non-profit, receiving no state funding except Medicaid reimbursement. With more than 1,200 UW Health physicians and 85 outpatient clinics, UW Hospital and Clinics also offers six intensive care units (trauma and life support, pediatric, cardiac, cardiothoracic, burn, neurosurgery) with 83 total beds. UW Hospital and Clinics is one of only two organizations in Wisconsin with designated Level One adult and pediatric trauma centers. Adjacent to UW Hospital and Clinics is the American Family Children’s Hospital, UW Health’s complete children’s medical and surgical center with a pediatric intensive care unit, an internationally recognized transplant surgery program, a children’s cancer center, and a family-friendly atmosphere.

Our Section of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery consists of nine full-time faculty members with more than 60 years of teaching experience in this specialty. The clinical time on surgical critical care may be supplemented with an additional year of academic development and acute care surgery: working with our faculty to better prepare for a career in academic surgery. Our faculty has copious experience in basic and clinical sciences and, in particular, in Health Services Research. This supplemental experience may culminate in a Masters in Science or Certificate degree through the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as per candidate needs.

The ideal candidate will have completed a general surgery, emergency medicine, gynecology, orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery or anesthesia fellowship at an ACGME-accredited program. They must possess the ability to work hard, dedicate time to optimizing the care of patients, and think outside of the box.

This program stresses the fellow’s increased independence as a surgical critical care surgeon. Under the supervision of our seven-surgeon Trauma and Acute Care Surgery team, the fellow will gain competency in Burn Care; Cardiovascular Physiology, Pathophysiology and Therapy; Endocrine Disorders; Ethics and Palliative Care; Gastrointestinal Disorders; Hematologic Disorders; Infections Diseases; Monitoring and Bioengineering; Neurology; Nutrition; Obstetrical Disorders; Pediatrics; Pharmacology; Renal Failure; Respiratory Disorders; Statistics, Transplantation; Trauma; and Ultrasound Imaging.

The fellow will receive assessment and evaluation in these six competencies:
•Interpersonal & Communication Skills
•Medical Knowledge
•Patient Care
•Practice-based Learning & Improvement
•Professionalism
•Systems-based Practices

The fellow will also benefit from a collaborative teaching environment. University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics supports critical care fellowships through three departments — Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, and Surgery. The programs work together to foster an educational environment that includes clinical rotations, weekly clinical conferences, weekly research conferences, monthly mortality and morbidity conferences, and quarterly Grand Rounds.

Educational opportunities beyond the surgical, clinical and didactic experience include:
•Offerings within the university such as the Systems Engineering for Improving Patient Safety (SEIPS) course, utilization of the Wisconsin Surgical Outcomes Research Program (WiSOR), start-up research grants, and faculty mentoring committees
•National offerings available through associations such as the American College of Surgeons, the Society of Critical Care Medicine, and the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma
•Co-authoring papers and book chapters
•Clinical research and educational programs, particularly in the simulation lab
