  • The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program at UT Southwestern provides trainees a comprehensive, multidisciplinary exposure to critical care across a variety of healthcare landscapes. During their training, fellows will learn current evidence-based medicine, advanced procedural skills, and practical leadership traits required to function as a consultant in critical care medicine, regardless of their ultimate practice setting. 

    Training Pathways

    Our program offers two unique ACGME-approved training pathways: (1) a 12-month pathway for trainees who have completed an ACGME-accredited Anesthesiology residency and (2) a 24-month pathway for trainees who have completed an ACGME-accredited Emergency Medicine residency. The 12-month program is sponsored by the Department of Anesthesiology while the 24-month program is co-sponsored by the Departments of Anesthesiology and Emergency Medicine. Participants in the 24-month program will spend approximately two months working in the Emergency Department during their first year. Graduates of both programs will be eligible for the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) critical care medicine board certification upon successful completion of their fellowship.


    Trainees participate in a robust didactic program that includes daily teaching rounds, formal resident and fellow lectures, multidisciplinary journal club conference, Trauma Institute of San Antonio (TRISAT) Critical Care online lecture series, critical care medicine board exam preparation, and high-fidelity critical care simulation sessions in UT Southwestern’s state-of-the-art Simulation Center. Additionally, fellows participate in multiple standardized examinations to help prepare them for their ABA APPLIED examination.

    Scholarly Activity

    UT Southwestern Medical Center offers abundant and diverse research opportunities across the institution. Fellows work closely with faculty mentors and participate in ongoing clinical and basic science research efforts, quality improvement initiatives, and academic writing projects.
