Critical Care Medicine

The Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship at Duke University Medical Center is a three-year program accredited by the American Committee on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) which is designed to provide outstanding clinical and research training in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine.

The first year of fellowship is predominantly clinical with an in-depth exposure to a broad range of critically ill medical and surgical patients. The program at Duke is one of the few academic programs where the critical care fellows manage all medical and surgical ICU patients (multidisciplinary, cardiac, and ECMO).

The second year of fellowship is primarily dedicated to research activities with reduced clinical responsibilities.

The third year offers flexibility based on the individual’s interests and includes clinical activities with increased supervisory role, opportunities for clinical electives, and additional protected research time to complete research projects and prepare scientific manuscripts.
