Curriculum - Surgical Critical Care at MedStar Washington

The goal of the Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is to train surgeons in the subspecialty of Surgical Critical Care. This fellowship will prepare the graduating fellows to function in either an academic center or in a community hospital environment.

This will be accomplished by exposing the Surgical Critical Care Fellow to a multitude of clinical aspects of critical care, teaching, administration and research. The specific educational objectives of this fellowship program in Surgical Critical Care are to enable fellows to investigate and evaluate, teach and apply clinically the fundamental principles of critical care.

Fellows are allowed four weeks of vacation per year. In addition, one week of educational leave may be approved. Additional educational leave for presentation of original research will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
