    Description: Rutgers – New Jersey Medical School has two American Board of Surgery and ACGME-accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship positions. The primary training site is The University Hospital (UH) in Newark, New Jersey. UH is one of three Level I Trauma Centers in New Jersey and serves 5 million people annually. We are home to the busiest EMS service in the state and evaluate approximately 3000 patients per year; over 50% require admission. Of those admitted, 20% go directly to our SICU and 20% go directly to the operating room. 27% of our patients sustain penetrating trauma. Our program is a one-year program in surgical critical care with a well-balanced experience in the management of the critically ill. Our fellows spend most of the year in our SICU but also have rotations in burn surgery/ICU, cardiothoracic ICU, and medical ICU. We offer electives in interventional radiology, ultrasound or palliative care. Fellows also have exposure throughout the year to trauma resuscitation and operative management. The fellows participate in our on-call schedule for trauma and also rotate on the trauma service. Each fellow traditionally completes 80-150 operative cases per year; however this is structured not to interfere with their critical care experience. We are located near New York City and several of our fellows have commuted from NYC and also lived throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
