Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
The overall goal of the advanced residency training in Pediatric Surgical Critical Care at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is to provide advanced proficiency in the care and management of critically ill surgical patients ranging in age from extreme prematurity through adulthood, with emphasis on the pediatric surgical critical care patient.
At the conclusion of the training program, the Surgical Critical Care Fellow (SCCF) will be qualified for certification in Surgical Critical Care by the American Board of Surgery, and able to assume responsibility for the critical care management of the surgical patient.
During the training program, the SCCF will demonstrate mastery of the six competencies set forth by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and be afforded increased responsibility and independence according to his/her skill. It is essential that the SCCF:
It is the expectation that the SCCF will participate in scholarly activities during their fellowship. The SCCF is encouraged to participate in various research activities in the Division of Pediatric General and Thoracic Surgery at Children’s Hospital. Research methodology and statistics are covered in journal clubs and didactic lectures, as well as during direct involvement in research activities. While the one-year time frame of the training program does not allow for a formal research rotation, provisions can be made to provide additional research training should the SCCF desire.
Resources are provided for the SCCF to attend one national academic meeting related to pediatric surgical critical care during the training period. Additional opportunities and resources are available for the SCCF to present the results of their research during the Fellowship program.
Pediatric Surgical Critical Care has a listing on the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA) website, AMA/FRIEDA, and the Surgical Critical Care Program Directors Society (SCCPDS) website.
