The Trauma Fellowship, considered by many to be the world's premier clinical trauma training program, evolved into the ACGME-accredited (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) Surgical Critical Care/Trauma Fellowship in 1994. Based to a large degree at the Shock Trauma Center, the goal of the fellowship is to produce leaders in academic surgery in the area of critical care and trauma. Under the guidance of strong faculty, fellows master the cutting edge techniques of critical care medicine. The global management of the multiple trauma patient is the focus of the fellowship experience, a one-year program involving patient care, research and education.

A six-month Trauma Anesthesiology Fellowship involves patient care, education, and research. Electives are available in critical care medicine, hyperbaric medicine, acute pain management, and research. All electives are arranged and approved with the fellow's future career goals in mind.

The Shock Trauma program is considered by many to be the world's foremost Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship. A one-year program, the primary goal of the Shock Trauma Orthopaedic Trauma Fellowship is to train orthopaedic surgeons to become clinically proficient in managing the musculoskeletal injuries of the severely or multiply injured patient in an interdisciplinary environment.
