The Burn Fellowship is a year long 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

The unit is a 16-bed swing unit meaning that all of the beds on that unit can either be ICU or step-down. They don't differentiate eight versus eight.

The Burn Center serves as the regional resource for the care of acute burns and reconstructive needs of burn survivors and provides care for people injured from fire, chemical, scalds, electrical burns and skin loss injuries and diseases.


Research opportunities include aspects of active research in resuscitation and wound healing.


Burn fellows have the opportunity to attend the national American Burn Association meeting or the regional Southern Medical Association burn meeting.
