Welcome from our Program Director

On behalf of the faculty at HCA Florida Kendall Hospital, we deeply appreciate your interest in our Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program.

Mission Statement

The HCA Florida Kendall Hospital Surgical Critical Care Fellowship Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders.

As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents' perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values and ideals.

Program Overview

The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship at HCA Florida Kendall Hospital in Miami, Florida is a one-year program.

During rotations in this fellowship, you gain experience managing critically ill surgical patients from all surgical subspecialties. The trauma and general surgical intensive care unit (ICU) is the core rotation and encompasses seven to nine months of the fellowship.

You also have rotations in the following hospitals:

  • HCA Florida Kendall Hospital
  • HCA Florida Aventura Hospital

Your level of responsibility grows as the fellowship progresses. By the end of the year, you should be competent in managing the full range of problems encountered by surgical patients in an ICU.

Throughout the fellowship, you learn from faculty how to manage patients, and you are mentored in the art of adult education.

The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
