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.
