Surgical Critical Care Fellowship

Jefferson is proud to offer a one-year ACGME accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship. Two fellows are trained annually to become experts and leaders in the management of critically ill and injured patient populations.

The main training environment is our state of the art 25-bed SICU which cares for patients following major traumatic injuries, complex elective and emergent general surgery procedures, and transplantation. Further training is provided in the 17-bed CVICU, which cares for patients requiring advanced cardiac support, including ECMO and ventricular assist devices. Additional training in our Neurological Intensive Care Units and via electives rounds out the clinical experience. Fellows participate in the educational programs for house staff and are expected to complete at least one clinical research project.

To be eligible for application for the fellowship program, residents must have completed at least three clinical years in an ACGME-accredited graduate educational program in one of the following specialties:

  • surgery,
  • anesthesiology,
  • neurological surgery,
  • obstetrics and gynecology,
  • orthopaedic surgery,
  • otolaryngology surgery,
  • thoracic surgery,
  • vascular surgery, or
