Critical Care Medicine

Fellow Experience

New for 2023, our program sponsors a two-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in critical care anesthesiology in partnership with the UW Department of Anesthesiology to sponsor.

Fellows receive broad training in medical, surgical and cardiothoracic critical care, including extracorporeal device support (ECMO and VADs) and perioperative care for solid organ transplantation including liver, heart, and lung transplants.

Our faculty include multiple dually-trained in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care and staff with broad representation across five different UW system ICUs. Fellows are integrally involved in all of the intensive care units and develop graduated responsibility through the year, gaining independence and comfort in managing all aspects of critical illness.

Fellows are expected to lead daily teaching rounds and participate in didactic sessions both as learners and teachers. We have excellent exposure to the full breadth of critical care, and our practice is team-oriented, supportive, and collaborative between disciplines.
