Emory University has an opening for One year Surgical Critical Care Fellowship position.
During the ACGME-approved surgical critical care fellowship, fellows rotate for four months in the trauma ICU, one month in the neuro ICU, and take trauma surgical call at Grady Memorial Hospital; and rotate for two months in the surgical/transplant ICU, two months in the cardiothoracic ICU (with extensive ECMO exposure), and one month on the acute care surgery service at Emory University Hospital.
Fellows also rotate in the electronic ICU at Emory or in Australia, and have additional elective time related to areas of interest. Common elective rotations have included echocardiography, global health in Ethiopia, airway, and burns. Additional electives are available for interested fellows. Craig Coopersmith, MD, FACS, MCCM, Emory Surgery's vice-chair of research and interim director of the Emory Critical Care Center, directs the SCC fellowship.
All Emory Surgery faculty on the trauma and surgical critical care services at Grady are certified by the American Board of Surgery in general surgery and surgical critical care. Faculty in critical care services at Emory are boarded in a primary specialty, such as surgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and internal medicine, as well as critical care. Many are triple-boarded, possessing additional expertise in echocardiography, hepatology, and nephrology.
Broad opportunities are available to fellows for clinical research. The program strongly supports attendance and presentations at national meetings, and multiple recent fellows have had podium presentations and published first author papers.
