Broad familiarity and expertise in the multidisciplinary approach to Critical Care Medicine will be emphasized.

In learning to be a consultant, the fellow must learn how to be a teacher. The Fellow will be asked to prepare formal lectures for Medical Student, Resident, and Fellow level conferences. The Fellow will also participate in quality improvement efforts at the Dallas VA Medical Center.

The Fellow will gain experience in ICU administration through observation and increasing responsibility for a number of administrative issues. The fellow will gradually share responsibility for bed triage, training of ancillary personnel in critical care and ongoing review of intensive care unit outcome data. When training is completed, the fellow will be familiar with the administrative issues involved in the running of an Intensive Care Unit.

The fellow will be affiliated with the Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. The fellowship is 12 months in duration and includes interventional, interdisciplinary, acute, chronic, and cancer pain management on an inpatient and outpatient basis. On average, fellows participate in over 500 interventional procedures per year. Participation in a variety of research projects is encouraged, but not required.
