The University of South Alabama Medical Center is offering a one year fellowship in surgical critical care. USAMC is the only level I trauma center on the Gulf Coast from Pensacola to New Orleans and receives patients from both urban and rural facilities. Our surgical critical fellow is exposed to a variety of patients from trauma and the surgical subspecialties. The fellowship consists of nine months in the Surgical-Trauma Intensive Care Unit, two months of electives, and one month of vacation. There is opportunity for rotations in the Medical ICU and the Burn ICU. Weekly critical care conferences are held and the fellows are expected to prepare a department grand rounds presentation. The fellow also participates in the weekly ICU multidisciplinary rounds and attends the monthly trauma peer-review conference. Clinical research is encouraged but not required. We have a 100% first time pass rate on the Surgical Critical Boards.
