The Maine Medical Center (MMC) Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is a one year, ACGME-accredited program that provides advanced training in all aspects of surgical critical care, including state-of-the-art clinical care and research. Our multi-disciplinary program is lead by critical care specialists who are board-certified in medicine, surgery and anesthesia. Each faculty member will play a key role in your education as you develop expertise in caring for the critically ill.
The core mission of our program aligns with that of Maine Medical Center and it's parent company, MaineHealth: Working together so our communities are the healthiest in America. Although academic achievement and scholarship will be integral to the development of trainees, producing strong clinicians exposed to a large array of complex problems will be the main thrust of the program. We are committed to training fellows in the clinical management of complex surgical and medical problems in critically-ill surgical patients. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, fellows will be eligible for board certification in surgical critical care.
