Welcome to the Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program at Memorial Health University Medical Center (MHUMC) and Mercer University School of Medicine in Savannah, Georgia. The Memorial Health University Medical Center Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As part of HCA Healthcare, a single mission drives us: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.
The program is designed to offer the fellow a rewarding, educational environment where the fellow is provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the fellow’s clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding the fellow’s perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.
This fellowship program is at our Level-1 trauma center serving 24 counties in southeast Georgia and 4 in South Carolina. We care for a broad patient population and have extensive clinical volume to provide the critical care fellow the experiences to attain proficiency in the management of the critically ill patients. In addition, the surgical critical care fellow assumes supervisory and administrative roles in each ICU under supervision and mentorship of each of the assigned faculty.
The length of the educational program is 12 months, 2 months of which are elective rotations.
Our trauma facility had 2,727 Trauma Activations last year. We have a 12% Penetrating and 87% Blunt injury ratio. Our fellows do the operative cases on all of the damage control procedures.
It is an 82 bed intensive care unit that admits patients > 18 years of age. The majority of the patients admitted to the TSICU are trauma and emergency general surgery patients but also include, surgical oncology, colorectal surgery, orthopedic surgery, OB/GYN and ENT surgery patients. The TSICU service follows all patients on the trauma and general surgery services admitted to the TSICU and acts a consult service for the other subspecialties. The TSICU team is led by a board certified Surgical Critical Care attending. All TSICU attending physicians are on faculty at Mercer University School of Medicine. The team consists of a board certified critical care attending, a surgical critical care fellow, 2-3 junior residents, a night PGY-4 resident and one APP. The team may also include 4th year medical students. The critical care fellow is expected to perform as a junior attending.
