Program Description

The Burn/Critical Care Fellowship is an ACGME accredited program, a one-year clinical training experience based in the Burn Unit at the Los Angeles General Medical Center. The schedule has eight (8) months in the Burn Unit and four (4) months of Surgical Critical. This schedule allows training in all aspects of burn treatment while making the fellow eligible for certification (CAQ) in Surgical Critical Care.
