ACGME-accredited Surgical Critical Care (SCC) Residency
- Applicants must be board-eligible or certified by the American Board of Surgery.
- Successful completion of this intense, multidisciplinary SCC program will qualify the Resident for the American Board of Surgery Examination in Added Qualification for Surgical Critical Care.
- Maricopa Medical Center is a busy, inner-city 326-bed American College of Surgeons (ACS)-verified Adult (Level I) and Pediatric (Level II) Trauma Center (www.aztraumacenter.com) and home to the Arizona Burn Center (ACS-verified Adult & Pediatric; www.azburncenter.com).
- SCC residents will benefit from a cooperative educational relationship between the faculty of Maricopa Medical Center and the Mayo Clinic Hospital (Arizona) Critical Care Unit, a multi-disciplinary program within a private, highly specialized 244-bed healthcare facility.
- Each site has its own ACGME-accredited general surgery training program and provides continuous, in-house intensivist coverage serving as an additional educational resource for the SCC resident.
- A significant didactic curriculum and self-learning goals will be achieved over a 12-month period under the guidance of board-certified critical care faculty.
- This intense, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional approach will provide educational exposure that includes the procedural and administrative skills necessary to care for critically-ill patients, manage critical care units, teach critical care curricula, and conduct quality critical care research.
- The many facets of trauma and acute care surgery as well as significant exposure to burn surgery will be provided in order to give each SCC resident the opportunity to maintain their general surgical skills and allow long-term flexibility with job opportunities as a surgical intensivist and trauma and acute care surgeon.
If desired, further formal operative experience may be obtained with an additional training in the field burn surgery. This additional training will yield a Burn Certificate from the Arizona Burn Center.
Interested individuals should send:
- A letter of interest including long-term goals,
- An up-to-date curriculum vitae, and
- Three letters of recommendation
