Clinical and Research Facilities

Clinical Facilities

The Burn Treatment Center is one of the 50 burn centers in the United States officially verified by the American Burn Association and the American College of Surgeons.  The center includes a 16-bed critical and intermediate care inpatient unit plus the Burn Surgery Clinic, which has approximately 2,500 outpatient visits annually. All acute burn patients are evaluated within the Burn Treatment Center.

The fellow will round daily with the resident team providing close supervision, and will round with the charge nurse and rehab when available. Weekend rounds will be limited to weekends when the R1 is rounding. Nighttime/weekend call responsibilities include backing up the R1 when s/he is on call. We strictly adhere to RRC guidelines regarding work schedules and duty hours.

The Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioners on the service ultimately work directly with the faculty members; however, their input should be included in patient care. The residents and fellow have no supervisory role over the Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioners.

Research Facilities

The fellow is encouraged to participate in research projects throughout the year by participating on projects currently underway or by creating new projects.  The faculty on the Burn Surgery Service are continually conducting clinical research.  In addition, there are animal research laboratories available with University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.
