Program Director William Flynn, Jr., MD, FACS

On behalf of the Department of Surgery and the Division of Surgical Critical Care, we welcome you to our webpage describing the Surgical Critical Care fellowship offered by the Department of Surgery in the Jacobs School of Medicine at the University at Buffalo.

Our one-year curriculum consists of nine months of surgical critical are and three months of operative experience in trauma, acute care surgery, burn and cardiothoracic surgery. The curriculum is based on the Society of Surgical Critical Care Program Director’s Weekly Curriculum and graduates will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Surgery’s certificate of Added Qualification in Surgical Critical Care.

Fellows will have the opportunity to teach medical students and resident staff and to conduct supervised research with faculty mentors.

Exposure to the continuous quality improvement process will be an integral part of the educational experience as well as administering an American College of Surgeon’s Level 1 Trauma program.

Additional training in vascular surgery, medical informatics, public health, business and hospital administration are available.

Thank you for your interest in our program. If you have any questions about how our program can meet your educational goals, I look forward to speaking with you. I can be contacted through our training program administrator.
