Critical Care

  • About the Critical Care Fellowship

    The Critical Care Fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s is an ACGME-accredited three-year program dedicated to training fellows in state-of-the-art pediatric critical care medicine.

    Training occurs in our 36-bed PICU and 16-bed CICU; fellows take care of approximately 2,500 admissions a year. Clinical supervision and education are provided by 12 board-certified critical care subspecialists and five critical care / cardiology subspecialists, as well as a vast array of pertinent subspecialists and subspecialty surgeons.

    In addition, our program provides fellows with many opportunities for non-clinical scholarly activities, including training in basic science and translational research as well as opportunities to pursue advanced degrees through the University of Cincinnati.
