Curriculum

The goal of the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship program is to train fellows to become the future generation of critical care physicians who will provide skilled clinical care to critically ill and injured children, advance the science through research and innovation, and develop skills to educate other physicians and health care providers. We train physicians who we hope will serve as future leaders in the field of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine.
