Surgical Critical CareĀ 

The Department of Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine offers a fellowship in Surgical Critical Care accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). 

One-Year, ACGME Approved, Surgical Critical Care Fellowship

The Department of Surgery at Indiana University School of Medicine has had an ACGME accredited fellowship in Surgical Critical Care since 2008.  Eighteen surgical intensivists as well as multiple anesthesia and emergency medicine intensivists provide clinical training and didactic education to our fellows.  The program encompasses the rich opportunities of multiple tertiary academic medical centers providing three rotations in unique dedicated surgical critical care environments including two level I trauma centers.  We provide an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach to education and patient management with active participation in outcomes research, quality improvement initiatives, teaching, and guideline development.  A structured weekly didactic program is in place that fosters the development of core critical care knowledge and complex acute care surgery conditions and delivery of that knowledge to junior learners.  Exposure to ICU administration and trauma program management are also an integral component to fellowship training.  The fellows rotate through ten months of critical care and two months of acute care surgery services.  Three fellowship positions are offered each year.
