Anesthesia Critical Care Fellowship

Anesthesia Critical Care Fellowship

Vanderbilt has a robust Critical Care Fellowship run by the Department of Anesthesiology. It is a one year fellowship that qualifies the graduate to sit for the ABS Critical Care board exam. We have traditionally trained anesthesiologists and surgeons after their PGY3 year (during research years.) Our goal is to train the future leaders, educators and innovators in Critical Care.

This is an ACGME-accredited one-year program that provides an unparalleled innovative and in-depth critical care training opportunity in one of the country’s best medical centers and best cities to live. The fellowship is designed to meet the individual needs of each fellow in preparation for board certification, evidence-based critical care practice, and the additional professional aspects required to be a successful consultant physician.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) is the tertiary referral and Level I trauma center for Nashville, all of Middle Tennessee, and parts of four surrounding states. Core rotations for the fellowship include the CVICU, SICU, NCU, Trauma ICU, Burn ICU, VA-SICU, and ECHO/Ultrasound rotation with additional elective months. The fellowship program offers a diverse array of electives such MICU, palliative care, mechanical circulatory support devices, medical subspecialties (e.g., nephrology, infectious disease, and cardiology), nutrition, and the Medical Examiner's Office.

We also offer international elective rotations in Kenya and Guyana. Fellows who have academic interests are strongly encouraged to use elective time to develop and pursue clinical or basic science investigations and are expected to present their work at national conferences.

Our fellows work closely with the trauma/critical care fellows, ECMO fellows and cardiac surgery fellows. We have protected time for daily multidisciplinary conferences on a variety of topics and graduates are able to sit for the national board of echocardiography critical care ultrasound boards if they choose.
