    Description: The University of Colorado/Denver Health Medical Center’s Trauma and Acute Care Surgery (TACS) Fellowship is an AAST-approved formal training site. The 2-year TACS Fellowship includes training in an ACGME/RRC approved Surgical Critical Care training program. The goal of the critical care rotations is to educate fellows in the advanced care of critically ill and injured patients. Rotational experience includes trauma, cardiothoracic, burn, and pediatric, as well as general surgical critical care. The broad experience gained through a diverse faculty and programmatic elements should prepare the fellow for their board examinations as well as a career in academic practice. In addition, the TACS Fellowship incorporates training in advanced operative skills in thoracic, vascular, and hepatobiliary surgery with experience in trauma and emergent general surgery cases. Research opportunities also exist and are encouraged. Our website, with program demographics, hospital/rotation specifics, and application materials, can be easily accessed for further information.
