Faculty

A key strength of our fellowship is the close interaction of our fellows to our critical care faculty, many of which are leaders in American surgery. The faculty have a wide breath of experience in the care of critically ill and injured patients but also in the development of trauma/burn systems as well as a long track record for independent research funding with the Department of Surgery Surgical Outcomes Research Center (SORCE) and the Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center (HIPRC). Below represents a brief overview of the leadership of the fellowship.
