Message from the Program Director
Thank you for your interest in our surgical critical care fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital. Choosing a fellowship program is an important decision, and we believe that our comprehensive training program will meet your expectations and beyond. This is a fully accredited ACGME training program within the Department of Surgery, with 3 fellow positions per year.
The entire fellowship year is based out of Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, the flagship hospital of the Henry Ford Health and a large urban quaternary referral center for the region. We are a Level 1 trauma center and a high-volume solid organ transplant program, including heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, small bowel, and multi-visceral transplantation. In addition, we offer advanced services and expertise in disciplines within interventional cardiology, cardiac surgery, interventional radiology, neurosurgery, and various cancer treatments. As such, fellows are exposed to substantial depth and breadth of complex critical care pathologies, as well as cutting-edge technology and treatment approaches. Our fellows also receive formal training in point-of-care ultrasound, ECMO, ventricular assist devices, and invasive and non-invasive hemodynamic monitoring.
Our ICUs emphasize a multi-disciplinary collaborative approach to patient care, allowing fellows to benefit from the knowledge and skill-set of outstanding providers in all facets of patient care. We have a diverse group of dedicated, enthusiastic, and accomplished faculty with expertise in various areas within critical care and trauma who are committed to your education and professional success. Our goal is to help you develop clinical, procedural, research, and administrative skills to become leaders in surgical critical care, with a high level of proficiency in caring for the most complex and critically ill patients. It is our privilege to train competent and compassionate surgeons, and to help you identify and achieve your career goals.
Our training program was founded in 1991 and has graduated over 60 fellows since its inception. Over this time, I believe we have established an excellent training program with a well-rounded experience and rich didactic curriculum. At the same time, we appreciate the importance of continued evolution and are always striving to incorporate innovative ideas to grow and advance our program.
I look forward to reviewing your application and answering any questions that you may have.
