The Riverside University Health Systems Medical Center (RUHSMC), an ACS-COT verified Level I trauma center and Riverside county-designated safety net hospital, is home to the RUHS/University of California Riverside surgical critical care fellowship. RUHSMC is dedicated to the mission of providing acute care and critical care services for individuals of all backgrounds. We maintain a tradition of caring for the under-served and a commitment to improving the well-being of our culturally and socioeconomically diverse population. The Department of Surgery hosts a comprehensive range of services to treat a wide range of high-acuity pathophysiology: not limited to trauma, vascular, oncologic, gastrointestinal, plastic, and minimally invasive surgery. RUHSMC is home to academic programs with dedicated residencies in general surgery, emergency medicine, internal medicine, radiology, neurosurgery, orthopedics, neurology, pediatrics, and psychiatry. Fellows, residents, and students from Loma Linda University and the University of California, Riverside also rotate on site to expand their educational experience. Our 439-bed hospital has 12 operating rooms for inpatient services and an additional 6 operating rooms dedicated to elective operative services in our new outpatient building.
Our program enables fellows to serve as leaders and administrators of busy surgical intensive care units and prepares them to be robust contributors to the surgical critical care field.
