University of Nebraska Medical Center


The Division of Acute Care Surgery at UNMC is a highly skilled team of surgeons that is dually board certified surgery and surgical critical care working in collaboration with subspecialists to provide the highest quality care to traumatically injured and critically ill patients. Along with a busy clinical service, our physicians are committed to educating medical students, residents and fellows through bedside teaching, multidisciplinary teaching conferences, simulation and collaborative research. 

Acute care surgery is an integral part of the general surgery residency program at UNMC, with rotations on trauma, emergency general surgery and surgical critical care throughout the curriculum. 

The surgical critical care fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship for residents with at least five years of ACGME-accredited general surgery training in the United States. Our fellowship program provides the highest level of training possible, with progressive fellow autotomy and comprehensive rotations.
