Surgical Critical Care Fellowship
Denver Health Medical Center's Trauma and Acute Care Fellowship was approved as an official training site by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma (AAST) in May 2008. Our first TACS Fellow finished in training in June 2008. Trauma and Acute Care Surgery (TACS) encompasses trauma and non-trauma surgical emergencies, as well as surgical critical care. Individuals trained in TACS will be qualified to provide comprehensive emergent surgical and critical care to trauma and non-trauma conditions in virtually any body region or organ system. Through this integrated educational experience, we are providing residents with the training to become academic leaders in this emerging discipline.
