Osteopathic (DO) Surgical Critical Care Fellowship in New York City

SBH Health System
Date Posted: January 16, 2019

Participate in a trauma-heavy surgical critical care (SCC) fellowship program in the heart of the Bronx in New York City. The program is based at SBH Health System (St. Barnabas Hospital) and is currently accepting applicants to start July 1, 2019 (later start dates will be considered). Out-rotations include specialty ICUs at Montefiore Medical Center and the Burn Center at Jacobi Medical Center. Accredited through the American Osteopathic Association, the SCC fellowship program includes rotations through closed surgical intensive and intermediate care units (SICU/SIMCU) as well as subspecialty critical care, ultrasound, simulation and research rotations. The fellowship offers the opportunity to craft a schedule that best suits an individual fellow’s educational and professional needs. Fellows receive excellent exposure to an urban, underserved population at an American College of Surgeons-certified trauma center with annually >3000 trauma activations (including a high-rate of penetrating injuries) and >900 SICU/SIMCU admissions. The program is supported by SCC fellowship-trained full-time attendings, a general surgical residency program and diverse surgical subspecialties. Bronchoscopies, invasive monitor insertion, tracheostomies, gastrostomies and other critical care procedures as well as trauma and acute care surgery operations are integrated into the curriculum along with formal didactic education. One SCC Fellow has been hired for July, and we are seeking a second SCC Fellow.
