Critical Care Anesthesiology Fellowship

The mission of the Critical Care Medicine Anesthesiology Fellowship Program is to train intensivists who develop the necessary knowledge, skill, and experience to become leaders in the field of Critical Care Medicine. The program emphasizes the multidisciplinary nature of Critical Care Medicine and it is designed to provide an extensive experience in a variety of critical care settings, including a dedicated Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit and Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit at the Mount Sinai Hospital as well as units in our affiliate at the New York City Health and Elmhurst Medical Center in Queens. These sites encompass nearly 90 occupied ICU beds daily and approximately 3,000 admissions per year. With this experience, graduates will be an expert in managing a diversity of critically ill patients and capable of supervising a critical care unit. Unique to our program is an emphasis on advanced procedural skills, parenteral and enteral nutrition and echocardiography.

The program is run in tandem with an Internal Medicine Critical Care Fellowship. We currently offer two ACGME accredited one year Fellowship positions to physicians' board certified, or in the process of obtaining their board certification in Anesthesiology.

In addition to Critical Care Anesthesiology, faculty members also have backgrounds and board certification in Cardiothoracic Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Pulmonary, Nephrology, Geriatrics, Cardiology, Surgery and Neurology. In addition, non-primary faculty with expertise in Neurosurgery, Obstetrics-Gynecology, Biostatistics and Informatics also actively participate in fellow education.

We participate in the San Francisco Match and will interview selected individuals between the dates of November to May preceding the rank list submission for positions beginning July 1st.
