Candidates for the Surgical Critical Care fellowship must have completed an accredited residency in general surgery. At this time, the fellowship is open only to residents who will have completed an ACGME-accredited residency
program. While, as a general rule, the ACGME allows third year residents to participate in surgical critical care fellowships, our faculty believe that the fellow will obtain the maximal benefit from the program after completing general surgery residency.
In addition, the completion of the residency allows the fellow to participate fully in operative trauma cases during the critical care fellowship.
The application process for any of these fellowships includes a written or online application, at least three letters of recommendation, and a personal interview. One letter of recommendation must be from your Program Director; the others should be from
individuals with first-hand knowledge of your skills and performance. Personal interviews begin in April of the year proceeding the initial fellowship year. Applications are made and interviews are arranged through the Section of General Surgery,
Division of Trauma, Surgical Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery.
