How to Apply

Applications are accepted through the SAFAS application service developed by the Surgical Critical Care Program Directors Society. Here is the application and interview process:

  1. Applicants visit the Future Fellows page on the Surgical Critical Care Program Directors Society website to review complete information.
  2. When ready to apply, applicants use the SAFAS application portal to complete their application. Successful applicants will be graduating from a US residency program and eligible to sit for the surgical critical care board exam upon completion of the fellowship program (we do not accept applicants who are mid-residency).
  3. After a detailed review of completed applications, CV, letters of recommendation, and personal statement, select applicants will be invited for an interview. For the 2023 application cycle, we are conducting virtual interviews with optional in-person site tours on selected dates.  
  4. We participate in the NRMP Match program for surgical critical care and will submit a rank list upon completion of the interview process
