Overview

The Burn Fellowship is a yearlong commitment that involves all aspects of burn care. This program is designed to provide a multidisciplinary exposure to the art and science of burn surgery.

Clinical Experience

The clinical portion of the fellowship involves all aspects of burn surgery, including resuscitation, acute operative care and reconstructive operations.

Fellows function within a multidisciplinary team environment for care of complex patients.

Fellows are involved in:

  • Care of both adult and pediatric burn patients
  • Acute burn resuscitation
  • Burn wound management, including the use of artificial skin products, allograft and cultured epidermal autograft
  • Managing social aspects and emotional needs of burn patients
  • Tertiary burn reconstruction, including burn scar management, releases, flap coverage and laser treatment
