|Surgical Critical Care Only
|Multidisciplinary, 12-month fellowship program geared to provide a fellow broad experience in critical care. The goal of the program is to prepare fellows to function as qualified practitioners at the advanced level of performance expected of a Board-certified subspecialist. The education includes didactic instruction in the basic and clinical sciences of surgical diseases and conditions, as well as procedural skills and techniques used in the intensive care setting. This educational process leads to the acquisition of an appropriate fund of knowledge and technical skills, the ability to integrate the acquired knowledge into the clinical situation and the development of judgement. The fellowship will provide the educational, clinical and administrative resources to allow fellows to develop advanced proficiency in the management of critically-ill surgical patients, to develop the qualifications necessary to supervise surgical critical care units and to conduct scholarly activities in surgical critical care. Emphasis is placed on learning how to manage patients in the context of the multidisciplinary team of healthcare providers, by coordinating overall patient care and maintaining a high level of communication with the other team members, patients and their families. The program will foster leadership skills through supervised independent activities and by the demonstration of educational leadership through teaching activities for residents, students and other learners.
