The Advanced Practice Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is dedicated to educating, training and recruiting APPs in surgery as to successfully integrate them into a career in surgery, while improving the life of every surgical patient now and in the future.
The goals for both the APP Surgical and Critical Care Fellowship programs are to educate and train the APP Fellows to be a qualified, well-prepared practitioner of surgery or critical care who is able to practice at a high level of autonomy and in parallel with standard of care following graduation from the fellowship. The education program at UCHealth encompasses training across a variety of surgical departments, through development of education in clinical management, technical operative skills, quality improvement initiatives and surgical decision making skills.
Over the course of 12 months, fundamentals of education will include a comprehensive 3-week orientation, weekly didactic education, skills labs (including knot tying, training in laparoscopic techniques, tissue labs, along with several other skills labs specialized for the surgical APP) and a range of rotational experiences, including acute care surgery, trauma surgery, critical care, surgical oncology, breast surgery, colorectal surgery, and cardiothoracic.
