Emergency Medicine Critical Care Fellowship

The Emergency Medicine Critical Care Fellowship is a two year program with two dedicated Emergency Medicine Fellows per year.  Specialty certification pathway is either through Anesthesia or Internal Medicine.

Clinical Sites

The current medical campus complex includes facilities for the UM Medical School, which was founded in 1848 as the Department of Medicine and opened to students in 1850. The medical campus complex also includes the Hospitals and Health Centers, which trace their history back to the nation's first university owned and operated hospital which opened in 1869.  The current hospital complex is a modern 865-bed, state-of-the-art facility, which has been consistently named one of the top fifteen hospitals in the nation, including the Frankel Cardiovascular Center, ranked the top cardiovascular center in Michigan by US News and World report and Mott Children’s Hospital, the only pediatric hospital in Michigan ranked nationally in all 10 specialties.  The hospital serves as a referral center for the State of Michigan and the entire Midwest.

ED Shifts

At this time, general ED shifts are not part of the curriculum.  Fellows do spend time in the Emergency Department during their rotation in the Emergency Critical Care Center.

Call responsibilities

Varies depending on rotation, night float 2-4 weeks/year

Research opportunities

A wide variety of research is available to the fellows, enhanced by the traditional excellence of the University of Michigan Medical School and consistent NIH funding, including over $310 million in research grants last year.  Research is not limited to the Anesthesiology or Pulmonary Medicine, with opportunities also available through the Weil Institute for Critical Care Research & Innovation.  We are most excited to initiate research in the EC3, as the “hyperacute” resuscitation phase will provide endless study opportunities for fellows interested in the Emergency Medicine and Critical Care interface.
