|Surgical Critical Care/ACS
The Washington University Surgical Critical Care Fellowship offers multidisciplinary training at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, one of the nation's leading academic medical centers. The 12-month program is dedicated to preparing outstanding surgeons for rewarding careers in critical care medicine.
The program provides comprehensive training in a supporting and stimulating environment. The year is broken up into 13 blocks, and fellows spend nine blocks receiving critical care training in our intensive care units including the surgical, burn, trauma ICU, cardiothoracic ICU and community ICU, two blocks on our trauma/emergency general surgery service, and the other two blocks are elective time with our fellows gaining exposure to critical care ultrasonography, airway management, advanced ECMO management and others.
Surgical critical care trainees must be board eligible in general surgery, urology, neurosurgery, or obstetrics and gynecology. The program is approved by the American College for Graduate Medical Education, and participates in the National Resident Matching Program.
There is an optional second year ACS experience available for fellows to expand their operative exposure and management skills. For prospective fellows interested in applying to a 2yr program, we do offer two 2yr spots in the match.
