The Medical Center, Navicent Health (MCNH) has a 100-year history of serving the central and South Georgia regions. It is the second largest hospital in the state of Georgia. It is verified by the American College of Surgeons as a Level I Trauma Center with more than 3,500 trauma admissions per year. MCNH is affiliated with the Mercer University School of Medicine. The one-year ACGME accredited surgical critical care fellowship training at the Medical Center Navicent Health began in 2008 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 and Endovascular, Advanced Cardiology Techniques, and Geriatrics & Palliative Care) and/or an away elective (Burns). During the surgical critical care experience, the fellows will broaden their basic skills and fundamental knowledge about diseases, disorders, and conditions; diagnosis and assessment methods; and surgical procedures that fall within the study of acute surgical problems and critical care. 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. The fellows receive an educational stipend of $1,500 per year for the purchase of books, journals, society memberships/dues, or the attendance to educational conferences.
