Critical Care Fellowship Program
“The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship program is directed by Andrea Elliott, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine, a cardiologist, and a critical care physician. Dr. Elliott oversees the dedicated critical care cardiology track while Dr. David Perlman, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine, a pulmonologist and critical care physician, serves as the Associate Program Director oversees the general critical care medicine track.
The program has applied for ACGME accreditation and should receive a decision in Fall 2023. The Critical Care Medicine program will provide a pathway for graduates from 2-3 year internal medicine subspecialty fellowships to continue their training in an ACGME accredited (pending at this time) critical care fellowship program for ONE year and graduate board-eligible in Critical Care Medicine.”
Training will take place primarily at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, with a small number (1-2) of rotations at Fairview Southdale Hospital and St. John’s Hospital.
The one year program is divided into 12 blocks that mirror the calendar months. There is a predominance of ICU time complemented with elective and scholarly time to pursue other interests. The fellows in both tracts have their rotations individualized to meet training requirements and to accommodate specific preferences. A typical schedule includes:
- Medical ICU
- Neuro ICU – 1 block
- Trauma/Surgical ICU
- Cardiothoracic ICU
- Electives (see options below)
|Elective rotations may include:|
