|Critical Care Medicine|
The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship consists of one year (clinical) or two years (combined clinical and research) of postgraduate training after satisfactory completion of a residency program in anesthesiology. The fellowship program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) whose most recent review of the program in 2009 extended accreditation for 5 years until the next site visit in 2014. The program has three positions each year.
The Division of Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine provides physician staffing to general surgical, transplant, postthoracotomy and cardiac surgical patients in the University Hospital Surgical Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Neurosurgical ICU, the Veterans Administration Surgical ICU, and to the Pre-Anesthesia Assessment Clinic located in The Kirklin Clinic. The Division also provides medical directorship to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit at University Hospital.
All of the clinical faculty within the Division are subspecialty certified in critical care medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology. Clinical faculty are present in each ICU all days of the year.
