Surgical Critical Care

Fellowship Program Description

The ACGME-Accredited Surgical Critical Care fellowship at NYU Langone Health is a one-year clinical training program specializing in the interdisciplinary and comprehensive management of surgical patients with life-threatening critical illness.

The NYU Surgical Critical Care Fellowship rotates to a total of three sites: NYU Langone Health- Tisch Hospital/Kimmel Pavilion, NYU Langone Brooklyn Hospital, and Bellevue Hospitals Center.

Fellows work under the supervision of critical care board certified faculty and manage ICU services composed of combinations of advanced-practice providers (APPs), residents, and medical students.

The fellowship rotation schedule reflects multiple facets of critical care including management of specific organ failures, and patients recovering from cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery or neurologic conditions, acute or acute on chronic illness, major surgery or complications of major surgery, organ transplantation, or acute trauma.
