Critical Care Medicine Fellowship


The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine fellowship is a three year program. Clinical responsibilities in the first year will include seven to eight months on clinical rotation (PICU/Anesthesia/CICU). Later in the year, fellows will assume administrative fellow responsibilities, including team management and leadership exposure, triage, and consultative experiences. In addition, in the first year, two to three months are devoted to the exploration of the fellow’s research interests .

During the second year, fellows will spend four-five months on clinical service in the PIC/CICU, with the remainder of the time spent on research. The third year focuses upon completion of the research pursuits with the goal of organizing and presenting the results of the scientific inquiry for peer review. In addition, clinical service time will focus on the preparation of the senior fellow to become an independent practitioner and leader of a multidisciplinary care team. 

About our Units
Fellows spend the majority of clinical time rotating though the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. In the fall of 2011, the CICU moved to newly renovated space, with the PICU expanding into the current CICU space.

The PICU is a 32 bed unit, which includes a neurocritical care area (four privdate rooms) as well as a positive/negative isolation area (an additional four private rooms). The PICU is home to a state-of-the-art audiovisual center, the Baier Media Room. The CICU, located contiguously with the PICU, is a 13 bed unit that includes ten private rooms and a three bed pod. The unit includes telemetry monitoring from the central nursing station, an echocardiography viewing area, and a team center.
