Professor of Surgery Chief, Division of Acute Care Surgery Trauma Medical Director
The Acute Care Surgery Division is dedicated to caring for all patients with life threatening surgical diseases. To that end, all patients at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (RWJUH) with life threatening surgical illness will be cared for by in-house ACS (Acute Care Surgery) faculty. The ACS Division continues to experience record setting growth and ongoing success. All incoming Fellows can expect excellent and well-rounded education programs in our Surgical Critical Care Fellowship (ACGME Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education verified) and Acute Care Surgery Fellowship.
The faculty from the Acute Care Surgery Division is also dedicated to teaching learners at all levels: medical students, residents, APPs, fellows, etc. The division has a formalized curriculum with over 10 hours of teaching weekly in additional to clinical teaching.
The educational efforts of the Trauma Center have also flourished with a new focus on simulation. New efforts are underway to add ASSET and ATOM courses to the current ATLS and TNCC courses already offered. All health care experts from pre-hospital to ICU were given opportunities to learn, discuss and improve in an environment supported by the latest in simulation technology.
The Division of Acute Care Surgery is actively involved in clinical, translation, and Global Health research efforts.
The ongoing mission of the Division to offer cutting edge clinical excellence in an atmosphere conducive to and supportive of educating the entire Acute Care Surgery Team has never been better realized.
