The fellowship is designed to develop advanced proficiency in the management of critically ill and injured patients in a transition to practice model. Our vision is to train surgeons comfortable with both the breadth and complexity of these patients, as well as developing areas of expertise in system operations, ultrasound, research, or education.
Fellows will work with regionally and nationally recognized leaders in trauma, critical care, burns, and emergency general surgery with years of experience in both military and civilian trauma. Fellows will spend 4 months with a focus on Trauma/Critical Care and 6 months of Emergency General or Vascular Surgery at OSF St. Francis Medical Center, our state level 1 designated facility with high acuity, and robust emergency surgery volume. They can spend the remaining 2 months at large urban trauma centers in Chicago with high rates of penetrating trauma. Unique to our fellowship is the opportunity for global experiences and practicing in austere environments.
Our fellows will learn how to manage available resources outside urban or quaternary centers. Fellows will also have the opportunity to develop advanced skills in point of care ultrasound including national certification, and specialized concentrations in trauma system management or research are available.
Interested applicants are invited to apply for one of two positions available. Applicants should have already completed a general surgery residency and preference for fellowship in surgical critical care (but not required).
