How to Apply

One Surgical Critical Care fellow is appointed each year. Completion of at least three clinical years in an ACGME-accredited graduate educational program in the disciplines of general surgery, neurosurgery, urology, or obstetrics and gynecology is a prerequisite for admission to the program. Residents who enter the fellowship program prior to completing a residency in one of these disciplines must have a categorical residency position in their specialty available to them on satisfactory completion of the critical care fellowship.

In addition, the following materials are required to complete the application process:

  • Satisfactory completion of USMLE Steps 1, 2, and 3
  • One letter of recommendation
  • Interviews with the Program Director and Surgical Critical Care Faculty

Applications should be submitted via the SCC and ACS Fellowship Application Service.
