The mission of the Critical Care Anesthesiology Fellowship Program is to train intensivists to become leaders in the field of critical care. We emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of critical care and give our fellows experience in a variety of critical care settings, including a dedicated Surgical Intensive Care Unit, Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit, and a Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit at The Mount Sinai Hospital. Fellows also spend time in the Level I Trauma Unit at Elmhurst Medical Center in Queens, one of our affiliate hospitals. These sites include nearly 90 intensive care unit beds with approximately 3,000 admissions per year, offering the opportunity to manage a variety of critically ill patients and to supervise critical care units. We focus on developing advanced procedural skills, prescribing parenteral and enteral nutrition, and proficiency in echocardiography.
The Critical Care Anesthesiology Fellowship is run in tandem with the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. This partnership allows both programs to tap into additional resources including a solid didactic curriculum. Experts in a variety of topics pertinent to an intensivist’s practice give weekly lectures. We offer two, year-long fellowships, to physicians who are board certified or in the process of obtaining their board certification in anesthesiology. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate and Medical Education (ACGME).
In addition to critical care anesthesiology, our faculty members also have backgrounds and board certification in cardiothoracic anesthesia, internal medicine, pulmonology, nephrology, general surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, neurology, biostatistics, and informatics.
