General Surgery Fellowships

The Divison of General Surgery currently has three fellowship programs.  

Surgical Critical Care Fellowship 

The University of Utah Surgical Critical Care (SCC) Fellowship program provides a setting in which advanced, highly skilled, medical education can take place. The faculty provides the opportunity for fellows to not only acquire an in-depth knowledge of advanced skills in critical care and operative techniques, but also to develop both academically and professionally. This is achieved through our integrated year-long Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited program and training to enhance administrative, research, and educational skills.

We are committed to providing excellent clinical exposure, as well as directed, expert instruction, promoting self-directed education, and fostering the refinement of fellows’ scientific and academic pursuits. The educational program consists of a combination of mentorship with a gradual increase in clinical, administrative, and educational responsibilities; didactic instruction; hands-on experience; and self-directed learning.

Acute Care Surgery Fellowship 

The University of Utah Acute Care Surgery (ACS) Fellowship program provides a setting in which advanced, highly skilled, medical education can take place. The faculty provides the opportunity for fellows to not only acquire an in-depth knowledge of advanced skills in Acute Care Surgery (Trauma, Emergency General Surgery, and Surgical Critical Care), but also to develop both academically and professionally. This is achieved through an American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) approved ACS Fellowship training in the management of emergency general surgery and trauma patients, and training to enhance administrative, research, and educational skills.

Burn Surgery Fellowship 

The University of Utah Burn Surgery Fellowship program was established in 2020 and is unique becuase it covers comprehensive care for both adult and pediatric patients in the acute, rehabilitative, and reconstructive phases of treatment. The Burn Team cares for the most severe burn injuries from Utah and the surrounding intermountain west area and the fellowship is based around our American Burn Association (ABA) verified burn center.
