We offer a one-year fellowship that will focus on training in our Surgical Intensive Care Unit while also encompassing experiences in the Cardiothoracic, Burn and Medical Intensive Care Units. The daily census in each respective unit on average is 10-15 patients. There are four faculty in the department of Trauma, Acute Care Surgery and Surgical Critical Care who together assume educational and supervisory responsibilities for the fellow. We offer a robust educational program organized around a weekly critical care conference run by the fellow with evidence-based lectures covering the current literature and standard of care in the field of surgical critical care. There is a modern simulation center within the hospital that is used for training in a variety of critical care scenarios. The fellow has the option to take a variety of surgery and critical care courses both within and outside the institution (See Opportunities below). The department participates in weekly Department of Surgery M&M and Trauma M&M conferences. In addition the fellows participate in weekly research and administrative meeting, and are mentored extensively in the transition from training to practice.
