Saint Josepsh's University Medical Center, Paterson, NJ
Date Posted: March 5, 2019

Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center, a 550 bed teaching hospital in Paterson, NJ, has an open position for its ACGME accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship for the 2019 - 2020 academic year. We are looking to fill the position with a high quality recent general surgery or anesthesia graduate who may be interested in pursuing a career as a surgical intensivist or who wants to augment their critical care skills as a practicing general surgeon. The mission of the Saint Joseph’s Surgical Critical Care Fellowship program is to provide fellows with a comprehensively structured cognitive and procedural clinical education in the critical care setting. This, in turn, will enable them to become competent, proficient, and professional critical care surgeons who are qualified to treat critically ill surgical patients, teach at the undergraduate and postgraduate clinical level and develop and nurture a lifelong commitment to learning and refining their skills and abilities as critical care surgeons. The fellow will work with a team of trauma surgeons who are all critical care trained and board certified. The hospital has a 12 bed, state of the art Surgical Critical Care Unit. The fellow will be exposed to a wide variety of critically ill surgical patients with a strong emphasis on trauma, general surgical and neurosurgical pathologies. The fellow will assume gradual responsibility for the initial evaluation and subsequent care and treatment of all patients in the SICU and surgical stepdown unit under the supervision of a board certified intensivist and will be responsible for supervising and teaching junior residents rotating through the SICU. Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center is a state-designated, ACS-verified Level 2 trauma center with an ACGME-accredited general surgery residency. Our Emergency Department is one of the ten busiest in the country with over 160,000 visits over the last year. Saint Joseph’s University Medical Center is committed to graduate medical education and has over 220 residents and fellows in programs in most major specialties. In addition to the standard critical care training, fellows have the opportunity to become ATLS instructors and take the American College of Surgeons’ BEST, ASSEST and REBOA courses, all of which are taught at the SJUMC campus.
