The Critical Care Service at the George Washington University Hospital dates back to the 1970s. Not long after, the trauma center first began at the time of President Reagan’s shooting. We have combined these two strong legacies into the Surgical Critical Care Program. Our one year program is unique in that it is a completely integrated, multidisciplinary program that provides the ICU fellow with a very wide and deep intensive care experience while also offering operative exposure. We are looking for individuals who are self-motivated, have a genuine desire to learn all facets of critical care, function well with clinicians from other disciplines, and have a desire to teach those behind them in training. We firmly believe that critical care requires multidisciplinary effort and strive to educate our fellows using this model. We utilize a variety of teaching techniques including formal lecture, simulation, bedside teaching, journal club, and M&M conference to ensure that we graduate fellows who can practice any type of critical care and have the tools necessary to disseminate the knowledge they have gained.
I welcome your application to our program and look forward to meeting you.
