The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine has been in existence for over 20 years with the steadfast commitment of providing trainees with high quality, comprehensive training in preparation for academic careers in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. Graduates from this program are in academic positions as clinicians, educators, investigators, and administrative physicians. Many have achieved excellence in their endeavors as evidenced by receipt of national honors, awards and grants as well as appointments to national committees and boards in their fields of interest.
The Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship Program at Yale is supported by a National Institutes of Health (NIH) T32 Training Grant. This grant provides salary support as well as funds for travel to a national meeting for research support and coursework.
With the field of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine in evolution, our program recognizes that individual candidates may have different career goals in academic medicine. The philosophy of the Pediatric Critical Care Program at Yale is to design a training program to achieve the specific career goals of each trainee under the mentorship of senior clinical and research faculty. These curricula will be adjusted to meet the needs of the individual. However, the overall goal of the program is to produce trainees who are leaders in academic pediatrics.
