We accept 3 fellows a year into our 1-year ACGME-approved fellowship. This program is designed for applicants who have completed their General Surgery residency and seek further training in the post-operative management of the critically ill pediatric surgery patient. At the end of the program, trainees are eligible to take the Surgical Critical Care Certifying Examination through the American Board of Surgery.
Our fellowship program, one of only a dozen in the country, offers:
- Learn from surgeons in the ICU: In most institutions, pediatricians manage surgical ICU patients. At Michigan Medicine, surgeons manage that care, providing pediatric surgery critical care fellows with a unique training experience as they learn from faculty who are trained in both .
- Diverse case mix: As a fellow, you will spend 8 months taking care of pediatric surgery patients in the Neonatal and Pediatric Intensive Care Units at CS Mott Children’s Hospital. You will also spent 3 months taking care of adults at the University of Michigan Surgical, Cardiovascular and Trauma/Burn Intensive Care Units. These rotations expose our fellows to a broad casemix of patients as they learn from our nationally recognized faculty. Michigan Medicine has particular strengths in ECMO, adult ICU critical care, trauma burn, and cardiovascular ICU care.
- Excellent career outcomes: We have a 100 percent board pass rate and previous fellows have gone on to become pediatric surgeons with clinical expertise as directors of surgical critical care or ECMO at their institutions.
