Our fellowship transforms promising internal and emergency medicine physicians into capable, well-rounded intensivists who are ready to succeed in either academia or private practice. By engaging as caregivers with the diverse patient population and multidisciplinary critical care team found only in a tertiary care setting, our fellows develop the superb clinical skills required to treat any critically ill patient competently and confidently. Through their participation in institutional educational efforts, quality improvement initiatives, and research projects, our graduates learn to provide exceptional care not only care at the bedside, but at a systems level as teachers, administrators, or researchers.

Training Overview

The program is 24 months long and consists of a series of 4-week rotations. Fellows spend 15 blocks doing clinical work in the intensive care units, including 11.5 blocks at the university hospital. The remaining blocks are devoted to electives and/or research.
