The UA Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is an ACGME approved one-year program to train BC/BE anesthesiologists to qualify for Special Certification in Critical Care Medicine. The fellowship schedule includes core rotations in our trauma/surgical, cardiothoracic and medical ICUs as well as available electives in echocardiography, nephrology, pediatric critical care and other subspecialties. Research is coordinated through the Department of Anesthesiology but the fellow may establish research relationships with various other departments.
Fellows are responsible for providing and supervising care for a diverse group of critically ill patients. During the course of their year, the fellow's will assume an ever greater level of autonomy over patient management as well as the teaching of various medical students, residents and other fellows who may be rotating on the critical care service with them. In addition to clinical and teaching responsibilities, the fellows also learn the logistics of unit management and efficient use of financial and staff resources.
