Curriculum | Faculty | Application

Our Critical Care Fellowship is an ACGME accredited 1-year training program where fellows receive broad training in medical, surgical and cardiac critical care. Fellows are integrally involved in all of the intensive care units and develop graduated responsibility through the year, gaining independence and comfort managing all aspects of critical illness. Fellows are expected to lead daily teaching rounds and participate in didactic sessions both as learner and teacher.

We follow ABA & ACGME guidelines to meet all requirements for training. In general, equal time is spent in the surgical / trauma, cardiac and medical intensive care units. We are a renowned transplant and vascular surgery center and our cardiac and thoracic care is exceptional with all types of surgeries well represented. ECMO use is expanding rapidly at the University of Wisconsin and fellows will rotate and round with the ECMO team. Uniquely, Anesthesia Critical Care fellows play an integral role in the medical intensive care unit at UW, a strength of our program that provides a breadth of knowledge that translates well into our other roles.

Fellows will be well equipped to board certify in critical care echocardiography via NBE with extensive training in echocardiography, pleural sonography and FAST scanning. In addition, TEE experience will prepare graduates to additionally certify in basic perioperative transesophageal echocardiography, if desired.

Electives are matched to trainee educational needs and are available in: Neurocritical Care, Infectious Disease, Nephrology, Echocardiography, Cardiac Anesthesiology including TEE experience, Transplant, Cardiology, Thoracic Surgery and Pulmonology. Elective time is also available for research in an area of interest.

Applicants: If you’re interested in pursuing a dual fellowship in Adult Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology and Critical Care Anesthesiology, please contact our Fellowship Coordinator, Brandon Russell or (608) 265-3734.
