Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

Fellowship Programs

Our Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is the only program of its type in Arizona. The fellowship has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education since 2011 and the first fellows started in 2012.

Fellows achieve the goals and objectives of the program through direct patient care, supervising other trainees and completing a comprehensive curriculum, including conferences, didactic lectures, courses, hands-on learning activities and workshops.

Admissions to the PICU and CVICU originate from the Phoenix Children’s Emergency Department, or hospital wards, from elective and emergent surgeries, trauma services or from neighboring communities and states. Many referrals of diverse ethnic groups come to Phoenix Children’s, so understanding and accepting the varied cultural beliefs and practices within these groups is an important part of optimizing the patient and family care experience at the hospital.

Intensivists provide in-house, around-the-clock coverage of critically ill patients with nurse practitioners and fellows assisting in care. Critical Care Medicine provides an important training ground for residents in the Phoenix Children’s/Maricopa Medical Center Pediatric Residency Program. In addition to patient care and research, personnel fill important roles at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix.
