|The Albany Medical College Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is a 12-month training program that offers extensive educational opportunities in a busy Surgical ICU at Albany Medical Center (AMC). AMC, the only tertiary medical center and Level I trauma center in northeastern New York, serves a catchment population of 3 million people. In 2010, our trauma center had over 2700 admissions that met National Trauma Databank (NTDB) requirements.
The Surgical Critical Care Service accepts over 1300 admissions per year with an average daily census of 22 patients per day. The distribution offers a wide-variety of cases including patients with trauma, elective and emergent vascular surgery, neurosurgical diseases and stroke, surgical oncology, and complex general surgical conditions (e.g.-severe pancreatitis, necrotizing fasciitis, etc.). Rotations in the Pediatric ICU and Neuro ICU as well as 1-2 electives in related disciplines are available at the Albany Medical Center.
