Mission Statement

The mission of the fellowship training program is to provide an outstanding educational experience in the clinical practice and research of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine and to cultivate an environment in which future leaders in this field are nurtured. In addition to providing a variety of patient care experiences, we are dedicated to fellow education. Both faculty and fellows regularly participate in the scheduled didactic lecture series, journal club, simulation and research conferences. The responsibilities and opportunities available to the fellow vary with the individual’s background, interests and future goals. They encompass direct day-to-day patient care clinical experiences, teaching residents and occasionally medical students, research and selected administrative responsibilities that will prepare fellows to become well rounded pediatric critical care intensivists.
