The University of Toronto offers a one or two year clinical Fellowship in Trauma and Acute Care Surgery. Successful applicants will rotate through Toronto’s two Level 1 trauma centres: Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and St. Michael’s Hospital. The two sites work cooperatively to deliver tertiary and quaternary trauma, emergency and critical care to a catchment area of over 8 million people, in addition to serving as the major referral sites for large parts of Northern Ontario. Together, St. Michael’s and Sunnybrook have over 1800 trauma team activations annually, making it the largest trauma program in Canada.

Clinical responsibilities will involve leading trauma resuscitations; overseeing care on a dedicated acute care/trauma service, and participating in the critical care aspects of trauma patients.
