General Surgery, Trauma and Surgical Critical Care
The Section of General Surgery, Trauma and Surgical Critical Care combines cutting edge clinical care, education and training of future surgeons, with the most advanced research to improve the management of critically ill or injured patients. The Section has three clinical missions.
- Trauma cares for all trauma patients admitted to Yale-New Haven Hospital, which is the regional Level 1 Trauma Center for Southern Connecticut and the only trauma center in the state to be verified by the American College of Surgeons for both adult and pediatric patients.
- Surgical Critical Care manages all critically ill surgical patients through its critical care services (the Surgical Intensive Care Unit and the Intermediate Care Unit).
- Emergency General Surgery treats patients with surgical emergencies both in the Emergency Department and in the hospital.
The Section of General Surgery, Trauma and Surgical Critical Care is actively involved in both clinical and basic science research in trauma and critical care-related issues.
The Surgical Critical Care Fellowship at Yale is designed to train leaders in academic surgical critical care and trauma through a rigorous clinical and educational experience.
