Critical Care Fellowship
The Section of Critical Care offers a fully accredited one year fellowship in critical care medicine and a two year (non-accredited) trauma/critical care fellowship. The fellows are an integral part of the resident critical care teaching program. In addition, the fellows gain advanced knowledge in the care of the critically ill, in ICU administration, and in trauma, trauma systems, and the management of a trauma center.
Boston Medical Center has state-of-the-art monitoring equipment and computerized physiologic data capability to provide accurate physiologic assessment of ICU patients. Patients seen may be from the general surgical, neurosurgical, otolaryngologic, oncologic, vascular, trauma, orthopedic, or urologic services. We care for a large volume of trauma patients and patients with multisystem organ failure.
After completing this two month rotation, our surgical residents have extensive experience in comprehensive physiologic assessment and management of the critically ill patient.
