The two-year Acute Care Surgery fellowship is designed to provide in-depth training for those interested in Trauma and complex Emergency General Surgery. During the first year the fellow will complete an ACGME accredited Surgical Critical Care fellowship. In addition to the critical care experience there will be opportunities to take trauma call with an in-house trauma attending.

The second year is accredited through the AAST and is structured to maximize the educational value of the Trauma and Acute Care Surgical services while also providing rotations on vascular surgery, thoracic surgery, and hepatobiliary surgery. During the second year the fellow will have the opportunity to rotate at a busy trauma center in Panama. This international rotation is meant to expand the fellow’s view of global surgery and is a unique opportunity to experience how trauma care is provided outside of the United States. The fellow will gain experience in the administrative requirements necessary to run a trauma program, as well as experience with research and quality improvement programs. The second year fellow will have a faculty appointment in the Department of Surgery and will experience graduated levels of responsibility but will always be on call with an attending surgeon.

Upon completion of this two-year fellowship the graduate will have a broad experience in Trauma, Emergency General Surgery, Critical Care, Trauma System/Center management, Global Surgery, and research. It is our intention to train the future leaders of the Trauma and Acute Care Surgery field regardless of whether they chose to practice at an academic medical center or community hospital.
