Cedars-Sinai Medical Center is a large hospital (960 beds), and cares for a wide breath of surgical patients in the 24-bed SICU. We are the oldest surgical critical care fellowship in Los Angeles, having our program for over 30 years. CSMC is an ACS verified Level I trauma center and the opportunity exists to gain trauma and acute care surgery experience during the fellowship. Additional exposure to neurocritical care occurs in the CSMC Neurosurgical ICU and we recently added formal training and certification in bedside echocardiography for the fellowship. CSMC also recently expanded its cardiac transplantation program and it is now the largest in the country; an elective rotation in the Cardiac Surgical ICU presents the opportunity to learn how to manage ECMO and ventricular assist devices. We are currently accepting applications for the 2020 - 2021 academic year.

Program started 1985
