Surgery Education - Critical Care Fellowship
The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is designed to offer additional training in care of the critically ill patient. Critical care fellows are also expected to be involved in resident education and basic or clinical research. Fellows are appointed to faculty at the rank of clinical instructor and will have the opportunity to take faculty trauma and emergency surgery call. Fellows rotate through the three Level One trauma centers in San Antonio -- University Hospital, Brooke Army Medical Center, and Wilford Hall Medical Center -- incorporating the best elements of each into their training.
UTHSCSA is accredited for three fellows per year. The one-year fellowship can be extended for an additional year of trauma surgery and research. Fellows also have the opportunity to earn the degree of Master of Science in Clinical Investigation from UTHSCSA during the fellowship.
Research: Trauma faculty research focuses on new and innovative ways to improve the care, management and treatment of trauma and critically ill patients. They participate in industry-sponsored studies and develop investigator-driven studies in areas such as acute lung injury, ARDS, blood utilization and blood substitutes, intra-abdominal infections, surgical infection and surgical nutrition. Fellows are encouraged to participate in studies and will complete at least one project during the fellowship.
