Critical Care Fellowship
The critical care fellowship is a one-year, ACGME-approved experience that encompasses management of airway and ventilator support, invasive hemodynamic monitors, a variety of drug infusions, and nutritional support, as well as offering exposure to medical ethics issues. The fellow rotates through the intensive care units at the VA Medical Center as well as the intensive care units for surgical (SICU), cardiovascular (CVICU), medical (MICU), and neuro (NICU) at Froedtert Hospital, which is the only Level 1 trauma and tertiary care referral center in Milwaukee. The training is truly multi-disciplinary, as the fellow will be working under the direction of faculty from Pulmonary/Critical Care, Trauma/Critical Care, and Neuro/Critical Care. The exposure is broad and includes medicine, transplant, trauma, vascular, general, cardiothoracic, and neurosurgical patients. The fellow leads a team of anesthesiology, surgery, medicine, neurology, and emergency medicine residents.
If the fellow elects to spend time in research, he or she may choose to base this research in either ongoing clinical or basic science research activities, or to develop his/her own independent line of research. It is expected that the fellow be able to prepare the research data in abstract form for presentation at a national meeting of anesthesiology or critical care physicians, as well as assist in the preparation of a manuscript for publication.
An optional second year of anesthesiology - critical care research also is available.
