Program Aims

We aim to graduate intellectually curious, clinically capable and patient-family centered surgical critical care intensivists able to lead the multi-disciplinary approach to the care of the acutely-ill and injured.

Exemplary Care

Fellows train in a high-acuity environment, learning techniques and approaches to complex and critically ill surgical patients to deliver outstanding care.

In-depth Education

Trainees develop a deep understanding of the complex physiologic changes that commonly occur after significant injury and in the post-operative period. Following evidence-based principles, fellows author and implement practice management guidelines, and in doing so, gain comprehensive knowledge.


In addition to dedicated leadership education, team management opportunities, committee membership and leadership opportunities develop fellows’ abilities to effectively and efficiently manage critical care units.


Fellows have multiple avenues to participate in meaningful research within the division, including surgeon-initiated prospective and retrospective studies, as well as multi-institutional projects and clinical trials.

Public Health

Fellows participate in development of trauma and critical care systems designed to deliver care to a large catchment area and have the opportunity to work with state and regional leadership.
