Acute Care Surgery Fellowship

We are currently accepting applications for a one-year acute care surgery fellowship at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. The fellowship provides the opportunity to work at our Level I Trauma Center that serves the greater central Ohio region as well as our new Level III Trauma Center. The curriculum focuses on a broad spectrum of acute surgical disease with particular emphasis on complex surgical emergencies, surgical rescue, and multidisciplinary surgical care. Elective rotations are available in burn surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, orthopaedic surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, and interventional radiology. In addition, opportunities to engage in a variety of research are available and range from surgical innovations to health outcomes research and clinical trials.

Our 1,382-bed Level I Trauma Center resides on the main academic campus and sees approximately 2,800 trauma patients annually. The trauma service operates in tandem with the emergency general surgery service forming two distinct acute care surgery services that typically carry a combined census of 60 patients. Our program strengths stem from our large volume of high acuity surgical cases as well as our commitment to excellence in clinical teaching. The acute care surgery service is led by 10 full-time faculty surgeons who maintain regional and national standings in academic surgery and critical care.

The Division of Trauma, Critical Care and Burn concentrates efforts in clinical care, research, and education related to patients with acute care problems. The division delivers high-quality care to patients suffering from surgical critical illness, trauma, emergency general surgery diseases, and burns. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center on the main campus is established as a Level I Trauma Center seeing approximately 2,800 trauma patients annually.

The Medical Center has over 1,300 patient beds, performs over 44,000 surgeries per year, and has over 1.7 million annual outpatient visits. Established in 1914, the Ohio State Department of Surgery has a long and respected tradition of excellence in clinical care, research and education.
