About the Program

The Department of Surgery through the Division of Acute Care Surgery offers a one-year Burn Surgery Fellowship. The goal of our program is to provide the fellow with an in-depth experience in the management of the entire spectrum of burn and complex wound treatment, burn reconstruction, burn related research, and prevention. Since the program's inception in 1982 there have been eleven graduates.

This fellowship has one opening each year. It is a one year fellowship with the possibility of a second year to complete a Surgical Critical Care Fellowship, which is the pathway to board certification.

The objective of the Burn Surgery Fellowship is to provide the fellow with the fundamental skills necessary for the management of the entire spectrum of diseases cared for in a Burn Treatment Center, including pediatric and adult burns, inhalation injury, burn reconstruction, complex wounds, and exfoliative diseases.

The fellowship is designed to allow the fellow to begin preparation for a career in burn care, or for those who are interested in caring for burn patients as part of their practice.
