Surgical Critical Care Fellowship
The Children's National Medical Center offers a one year fellowship in pediatric surgical critical care for residents who have completed a minimum of three years of training in general surgery. This fellowship accepts one resident annually and has been accredited by the Residency Review Committee (RRC) of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2012.
The Pediatric Surgical Critical Care Fellow (PSCCF) is responsible for the management and coordination of all pediatric surgical critical care patients in each rotation. The fellow will spend 8 weeks on the pediatric surgery/trauma service, 12 weeks in the NICU, 8 weeks in the PICU and 4 weeks in the CICU at Children’s National Medical Center. In addition, the fellow will spend 12 weeks at the Surgery and Trauma Critical Care Unit at the Washington Hospital Center.
Each PSCCF will also be permitted a 4 week elective period.
The objective of the program is to expose the PSCCF to educational activities focused on pediatric and adult general surgical conditions, trauma, burns, surgical-oncology and cardiothoracic surgery. The PSCCF will be expected to sit for the American Board of Surgery Critical Care Boards.
