The surgical critical care fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center has recently been approved for expansion up to 7 fellows. As such, we are looking for an additional critical care fellow to begin August 1, 2022. This is an ACGME-approved one year experience consisting of the following: 6 months Parkland Memorial Hospital/Clements University Hospital SICU.
The fellow will be primarily responsible for a spectrum of critically ill surgical patients. Service lines within the SICUs include transplant, vascular, surgical oncology, ENT, plastics, thoracic, urology, ob/gyn, trauma and EGS. All patient management will occur under the direct supervision of an attending physician. The fellow will also spend two months rotating on one of the Parkland Memorial Hospital trauma/EGS services where he/she will function at the level of a chief resident. All patient management will occur under the direct supervision of an attending physician. The fellow will actively take part in trauma resuscitations and the operative management of traumatic and emergent general surgical conditions. These busy services each average 70 cases per month. The remaining months will be spent on various electives. The fellow will be given a choice between burns, CV-ICU, ECMO, pediatric ICU, medical ICU, transplant, anesthesia, pulmonary, or an additional month on the Parkland trauma/EGS service. During any of these elective choices, the fellow will be functioning under the direct supervision of an attending physician.
