About the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

 The Critical Care Medicine fellowship at the University of Virginia provides an innovative, challenging, and in-depth critical care training opportunity in one of the country’s best medical centers. The fellowship is designed to meet the individual needs of each fellow in preparation for ACGME board certification in Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine and evidence based critical care practice.

The University of Virginia Health System is a tertiary referral and Level I trauma center for central Virginia and parts of surrounding states. Currently, the critical care units at UVA include a 15 bed Surgical/Trauma/Burn Intensive Care Unit (STBICU), an 18 bed Thoracic/Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit (TCVICU), and a 12 bed Neuro-Care ICU (NNICU). The TCVICU is staffed nearly exclusively by Anesthesia-trained intensivists, while the NNICU and STBICU has anesthesia, neurology, and surgical attending staffing that deepens the educational experience for the fellows.

The fellowship is an ACGME-accredited one-year program approved for Anesthesiology and Surgery trained physicians and recruit for four fellows annually through the SF Match.

We are an American Board of Anesthesiology APPROVED program for Emergency Medicine trained physicians, but EM fellows will complete a 24 month accredited fellowship program, which includes some surgery rotations, our core ICU rotations, and some emergency medicine rotations.
