EMRA Fellowship Guide
Chapter 5 - Critical Care Medicine Fellowships
Critical care medicine became an ACGME-approved subspecialty for emergency medicine physicians in 2011. In 2012, the surgical critical care fellowship pathway was approved for emergency physicians who are interested in becoming board-eligible intensivists.Ch 5a - Anesthesia CC Fellowship
Critical Care Tracks during residency
Now that EM residents can become board certified through IM, anesthesia, or surgery critical care pathways, interest in critical care fellowships is on the rise. There are also resuscitation fellowships for those who love critical care but don't want to be an ICU physician, plus other opportunities such as a neuro-ICU fellowship. If any of these pathways catch your interest, pursue a "critical care track" during your residency. How? Attend national meetings, take every opportunity to publish, develop research projects, participate in group discussions, load up on critical care rotations - do everything you can to be part of the critical care world. The links below can help! Please email us with any questions, and share your own success stories."On Track: Creating the Critical Care Track in Your EM Residency" by Jenelle Badulak, MD
