The burn fellowship at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics provides an exceptional opportunity for an in-depth experience in the management of the entire spectrum of care surrounding burns, complex wounds in a critical care setting.
UI Hospitals & Clinics is Iowa’s only comprehensive burn center, with pediatric and adult burn and wound admissions averaging 500 annually. Our burn treatment center has been verified by the American Burn Association since 1996, and the hospital has been designated by the American College of Surgeons as a Level 1 Trauma Center for both adult and pediatric patients.
Many of our past fellows have combined the one-year burn fellowship with an additional one-year surgical critical care fellowship. This comprehensive program offering provides our fellows with the training to sit for the American Board of Surgery Examination in Surgical Critical Care.
