Pediatric Surgery Critical Care Fellowships

There are 11 programs in the United States that offer one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved fellowships in Surgical Critical Care (SCC), with specific emphasis on Pediatric Surgical Critical Care. Upon successful completion of the SCC fellowship, trainees are eligible for the Surgical Critical Care Certifying Examination administered by the American Board of Surgery.  

Who can Apply?

Potential applicants may be eligible to participate in these fellowships after completing their third year of General Surgical residency.  However, some fellowships are designed only for applicants who have completed General Surgery residency. 

Fellowship Programs

Most programs offer one position annually; however, there are currently two programs offering three positions on an annual basis.
