Led by Program Director Dr. S. Rob Todd, the Baylor College of Medicine Surgical Critical Care Residency program provides residents with a broad-based education in all phases of surgical critical care.
The program allows residents to develop advanced proficiency in the management of critically ill surgical patients specifically as they relate to hemodynamic instability, multiple organ failure, and complex co-existing medical problems; to develop the qualifications necessary to supervise a surgical critical care unit; and to conduct scholarly activities in surgical critical care.
Our affiliated hospitals, Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Ben Taub Hospital, Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, and Texas Children’s Hospital, have extensive clinical volume to provide the critical care resident enough experience to attain proficiency in the management of critically ill surgical adult and pediatric patients. In addition, the surgical critical care resident will assume supervisory and administrative roles in each ICU under supervision and mentorship of each of the assigned faculty.
There are two separate focus areas of the surgical critical care residency program - the adult focus and the pediatric focus. The adult focus concentrates on adult surgical critical care patients at Ben Taub and Baylor St. Luke’s, with two weeks of pediatric training at Texas Children’s. The pediatric focus concentrates additional time on pediatric surgical critical care patients at Texas Children’s, along with adult care rotations at Ben Taub.
