Surgical Critical Care Fellowship
The Acute Care Surgery Division at Thomas Jefferson University is proud to offer a one-year ACGME accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship with an optional second year of Acute Care Surgery. Two fellows per year are trained to become experts and leaders in the management of critically ill and injured patient populations. Operative experience with our busy Acute Care Surgery Service is promoted during both years.
The main training environment is our state of the art 17-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 a robust educational program and are expected to complete at least one clinical research project and one performance improvement project. The second year of training currently involves junior attending level activities on our trauama, emergency general surgery and critical care services, with optional electives in international surgery, HPB, vascular, and other services.
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:
