General Surgery Residency

Surgical Critical Care

The one-year ACGME-accredited surgical critical care fellowship training program at MCNH began in 2010 with one fellowship position. The program expanded to two fellowship positions in 2013. The program consists of rotations in STICU, CVICU, PICU, and MSICU as well as two in-house electives (Radiology, Infectious Disease, Interventional Radiology & Endovascular, Advanced Cardiology Techniques, and Geriatrics & Palliative Care) and/or an away elective (Burns). The program also has a robust educational program consisting of a lecture series, Sim Lab training, and board review. The Comprehensive Board Prep Bundle is provided for each fellow to enhance their learning experience and to use in board preparation. This educational resource is utilized in conjunction with one-on-one board preparation with a surgical critical care intensivist.

A Message from Surgical Critical Care

Amy B. Christie, MD
Surgical Critical Care Services at Navicent Health continues its commitment to clinical outcomes research, quality improvement initiatives for ICU protocol development, and providing administrative leadership for transitioning to dedicated intensivist staffing in Navicent's Adult Critical Care Units. We continue to onboard excellent intensivist faculty to support this multidisciplinary department.

In the academic year of 2018-19, Dr. Amy Christie, transitioned from Associate Program Director to Program Director of the Surgical Critical Care (SCC) fellowship and we also welcomed a new faculty member in Dr. Christopher Franklin. As the SCC fellowship grows, our focus turns to continued fellow recruitment efforts and critical care outcomes research. Additionally, one of our graduating SCC fellows, Dr. Ashley Jones, will be joining the Navicent Surgery Department as core faculty. We look forward to Dr. Jones' contributions to both resident and fellow education!
