Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program

The NIH Clinical Center offers a critical care medicine fellowship program designed to:

  • Provide comprehensive clinical training in the care of critically ill patients
  • Develop critical thinking skills applicable to any patient with single or multisystem organ failure
  • Train the next generation of academic leaders

Clinical training consists of broad range of patients, procedures, teaching opportunities.

Opportunity for combined subspecialty training in pulmonary diseases, infectious diseases, and cardiology at top affiliated institutions.

Research training is 24 months continuous, and an additional 12 months of research training is available for those in the physician scientist track.

The goal is to maximize opportunities for an academic critical care medicine position after graduation. The majority of our Alumni obtain academic positions after graduation. Our graduates are national leaders in critical care medicine because of the mentoring, extended research and training time, and resources available to advance their careers.

The NIH Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is committed to fostering a culture in which people from all backgrounds are valued, engaged and empowered to reach their full professional potential. We are committed to supporting an organizational culture advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility.
