Welcome to the Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program in the department of surgery at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville. This one-year program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, or ACGME, and is completed at the 696-bed teaching hospital UF Health Jacksonville. The hospital's 28 bed trauma/surgical intensive care unit and adult and pediatric Level I trauma center resuscitates 4,500 Northeast Florida and South Georgia patients each year.

Fellows in our program gain experience in the delivery of surgical critical care to severely injured and critically ill patients. They become competent in the application of advanced technology geared toward optimization of care for the physiologic derangements seen in critically ill patients. Fellows are also exposed to onsite instruction in the process of administration and management of critical care units, as well as contribute to the education of members of the critical care team. Fellows actively participate in our ongoing research programs.

Please explore our site for additional details on our fellowship program. If you have further questions, please contact us.
