    Description: The central goal of the AAST-accredited Surgical Critical Care (SCC)/Acute Care Surgery(ACS) Fellowship at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is to train well-rounded clinicians with broad knowledge in all aspects of trauma, critical care and emergency general surgery who are capable of disseminating expertise and education locally, regionally and nationally. We also aspire to produce surgeons who are prepared to become leaders in the field of SCC and ACS either in an academic or community-based environment. The SCC Fellowship is an ACGME-approved program that offers a rich educational experience in the management of critical illness involving trauma, general surgery,transplant, vascular, burn and ECMO patients. The curriculum consists of direct patient care as well as conferences, literature reviews and independent learning provided by an enthusiastic group of faculty with diverse academic interests. The Wake Forest ACS Fellowship is one of only 16 training programs accredited by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST). While continuing to obtain the traditional advanced training in trauma, the ACS fellow also receives additional education in emergency general surgery and in fields, such as thoracic surgery, vascular surgery, orthopaedics, neurosurgery, hepatobiliary surgery, and interventional radiology. During this year, the ACS fellow assumes a leadership role on the busy trauma and emergency general surgery services. Intensive Care Unit and Trauma Center administration is also taught and research endeavors are encouraged and highly supported. The Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center is a NC state designated and American College of Surgeons verified Level I trauma center that serves western North Carolina and areas in the surrounding three states. The 820 bed hospital admits 3000 trauma patients per year of which over 500 are managed in the trauma ICU. In addition, approximately 1600 patients are cared for on the Emergency General Surgery service and over 450 patients are admitted to the surgical ICU. Between trauma and emergency general surgery cases, the ACS service supports a combined operative load of approximately 2000 cases per year.
