Jeffrey G. Chipman, MD, Professor & Chief, Division of Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery

The Division of Surgical Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery has been at the forefront of surgical critical care since the emergence of the specialty.  Founded by Frank B. Cerra, the division started one of the first surgical critical care fellowships in the country, which is now one of the largest.  Our board-certified surgical intensivists study and utilize the latest in advanced, life-saving technologies to provide cutting edge multidisciplinary intensive care for all critically ill patients in partnership with specialties throughout our academic health care system.  The University of Minnesota Medical Center, our primary teaching hospital, has been an ECMO center of excellence since 2007, and a platinum center of excellence since 2017. Our surgical practice provides expertise in emergency surgery, abdominal surgery, infections, trauma, and the management of surgical conditions in complex, complicated patients.  

Our Mission

  1. To provide the type of clinical and compassionate care we would expect for our own family
  2. To educate leaders in acute care surgery and multidisciplinary critical care
  3. To contribute to meaningful, life sustaining research in critical care and emergency surgery
