Vanderbilt University’s Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care fellowship programs are designed to train leaders in academic Surgical Critical Care, Acute Care Surgery and Burns through an intensive clinical, educational, administrative, and research experience. The Division of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care directs the clinical programs in Surgical Critical Care, Trauma, Emergency General Surgery, and Burns and offers three distinct fellowship training tracts: 

  • Acute Care Surgery Fellowship – 2 year integrated program combining an ACGME approved Surgical Critical Care program and a second year with dedicated advanced experience in trauma, emergency general surgery, burns, vascular, and thoracic disciplines, 
  • Burn Fellowship – 2 year program combining an ACGME approved Surgical Critical Care program with dedicated Burn Fellowship supplemented with emergency general surgery and trauma.
  • Surgical Critical Care Fellowship – Single year experience for those with academic and clinical interests outside of acute care surgery.
