Welcome to SurgicalCriticalCare.net!

Surgicalcriticalcare.net is an online, interactive, educational resource based at the Surgical Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery Fellowship programs at Orlando Regional Medical Center. It is open to any physician, nurse, respiratory therapist, medical student, or other allied healthcare provider interested in the discipline of Surgical Critical Care or Acute Care Surgery. SurgicalCriticalCare.net is designed to provide rapid access to essential information for caring for patients with critical illness.

The American Board of Surgery accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship at Orlando Regional Medical Center has been internationally recognized since its inception in 1997. Our fellows receive state-of-the- art training in patient resuscitation and management as well as intensive care unit & trauma center administration, research, evidence-based medicine guideline development, statistical analysis, and quality improvement (including Six Sigma and LEAN methodology). Many of our fellows now direct intensive care units and trauma centers around the world.

The Acute Care Surgery Fellowship at Orlando Regional Medical Center is one of only 20 such programs accredited by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST). The Acute Care Surgery fellowship includes rotations in acute care surgery, trauma, burns, thoracic surgery, hepatobiliary surgery, vascular surgery, orthopedic surgery, and neurological surgery. Acute Care Surgery fellows will complete the American Board of Surgery accredited Surgical Critical Care Fellowship before proceeding to the Acute Care Surgery Fellowship.
