Trauma/Critical Care Surgery

UC Irvine’s Department of Surgery has two positions for a one-year fellowship program in Trauma/Critical Care Surgery.

The fellowship, accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), provides comprehensive training in trauma, burn, acute care surgery, surgical critical care and general surgery.

Colorectal Surgery

The ACGME-accredited fellowship program in UC Irvine’s Division of Colon & Rectal Surgery is designed to develop skills in all aspects of colon and rectal surgery. The resident will have a comprehensive experience in the management of both common and complicated problems faced by colon and rectal surgeons.

In addition to learning to evaluate patients in the office, perform endoscopies and other non-operative management strategies, the resident also will learn the surgical management of diseases of the colon, rectum and anus.

These techniques include advanced laparoscopic, single-incision and robot-assisted procedures.

Gastrointestinal Surgery — Minimally Invasive Surgery

The fellowship program in gastrointestinal surgery consists of an extensive endoscopic experience, including a wide variety of advanced laparoscopic procedures as well as gastrointestinal endoscopy. 

Each fellow will spend 12 months on the Minimally Invasive Gastrointestinal & Bariatric Surgery service. The service has at three operative days per week. Emergencies constitute only about 3% or less of patient care. This service is staffed by a total of two full-time faculties and one additional volunteer faculty.
