The Division of Trauma/Critical Care Surgery of Indiana University is excited to announce our newly AAST verified 2 year Acute Care Surgery Fellowship to complement our already well established ACGME accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship since 2007.

Surgical Critical Care Fellowship

A multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional program has been developed to take advantage of the many tertiary medical centers in the Indiana University system affording three surgical critical care trainees per year. Three institutions make up the critical care exposure concentrating on training of clinical, administrative and academic skills. Twenty surgical intensivists staff the two trauma center’s surgical critical care units and university surgical intensive care unit with added instruction from 4 participating anesthesia and 2 emergency medicine intensivists.

Acute Care Surgery Fellowship

Two second year Acute Care Surgery positions have been awarded by the AAST to complete comprehensive training in advanced surgical techniques in multiple institutions within the primary Indiana University hospital system. The anchor hospitals are the primary referral medical centers for the state of Indiana providing a wealth of complex and complicated surgical management in multiple settings. Training is afforded in indigent care, private practice and university settings. Research opportunities are available in both clinical and basic science areas.


The Acute Care Surgery/Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is based out of Indiana University Hospital, a tertiary referral medical center for the state of Indiana. It maintains a newly built 18 bed Surgical ICU with a 6-bed shell ready for expansion. General surgery, thoracic surgery, plastic surgery and ENT patients are primarily admitted to this Surgical ICU which consistently maintains one of the highest Case Mix Indexes in the nation.

Indiana University Methodist Hospital is the primary urban Level I trauma center serving the greater Indianapolis metropolitan area as well as the primary referral hospital for the state of Indiana. The Emergency Department sees well over 100,000 patients/yr and the trauma services admit over 3200 patients/yr with exceptional Interventional Radiology, Neurosurgery and Orthopedic Surgery support.

Sidney & Lois Eskenazi Hospital, completed in 2013, is the second Level I trauma center also housing the regional burn center serving Marion County and the surrounding metropolitan area providing a trauma/emergency surgery exposure to the already well-established critical care program.

Grace S. Rozycki, MD, MBA and David V. Feliciano, MD serve as active consultants to both programs.

Program started 2007
