Training Site

The Surgical Critical Care fellowship program is an ACGME accredited 1-year training experience set in Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, MI. This hospital is a 590-bed hospital with 49 designated adult intensive care beds and 12 designated pediatric intensive care beds.

With hospitals that service rural communities in Carson City, Charlotte, Ionia and St. Johns and more than 115 sites across Mid- Michigan Sparrow Hospital captures a large volume of trauma and critical care patients in Michigan. Injured patients seen in the Sparrow ED are approximately 90% blunt and 10% penetrating. The Sparrow Critical Care team works closely with community and academic partners in Acute Care Surgery, Cardiovascular, Thoracic, Urology, Orthopedic trauma and plastic/reconstructive

The Training Program

The fellowship focuses on developing a broad skill set in Critical Care. The curriculum involves core rotations with the Surgical Critical Care, Medical Critical
Care, and Pediatric Critical Care teams. Available electives are tailored to the fellow’s areas of interest.

Each fellow will have the opportunity to arrange for a research rotation and mentorship with the goal of presentation and publication.

9 months of ICU (7 months of SICU, 1 month of MICU, 1 month of Pediatric ICU)
2 months of Elective rotation
1 month for research/academic pursuits

The Fellow will actively participate in all formal and informal departmental teaching activities (teaching conferences, daily ward rounds, journal club, basic science lectures, and selected readings). Specifically, the fellow will be required to prepare and present during the above-mentioned conferences. It is expected that with graduated responsibility, the fellow will eventually lead ICU rounds and teach Jr. and Sr. residents as well as advanced practice providers.

Living In Lansing

With its proximity to major universities and metropolitan areas, living in Lansing provides access to cultural events, local festivals and professional and amateur sporting events.
