About Us

The ACGME Surgical Critical Care (SCC) Fellowship Program offers one year of comprehensive clinical training at one of the nation’s leading Trauma and Emergency Surgery centers in the United States. The program is augmented and designed to include time for research. There is also an opportunity for a two-year training track that will give the fellow AAST acute care surgery fellowship certification. Both the one and two-year tracks include one year of accredited ACGME training, permitting eligibility to sit for the ABS SCC certification examination. The program has a 100% first-time pass rate since its inception.

The fellows lead comprehensive, interdisciplinary SICU team rounds each morning developing critical care decision making skills to optimize safe, high quality pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative care. There is a state-of-the-art fresh tissue dissection laboratory and skills center with a dedicated fellow curriculum along with dedicated time for weekly core lectures and journal club.

The program has a dedicated research fellowship program. There is ample opportunity and resources are available to pursue projects in multiple areas of investigation. Our fellows have an extensive publication history and have received numerous nationally recognized awards for research excellence.

Our environment of learning, including clinical schedules, is focused on patient safety, fellow/faculty/staff well-being and professional-personal life balance.

Ultimately, we aim to train those who will be clinically accomplished and wish to be leaders in the field- whether it be research, education, or quality improvement (QI).
