Mercy Graduate Medical Education - Critical Care Medicine

Introduction

Fellowship Program Director and Department Chairman, Critical Care Medicine

Welcome to the St. Louis University School of Medicine Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program.  The program offers a one or two year ACGME accredited fellowship to graduates of approved residency or fellowship programs.  Since 1979, over two-hundred fellows have graduated and are currently practicing critical care medicine nationally and internationally.  The fellowship has a rich history yielding two past presidents of the Society of Critical Care Medicine.  The fellowship’s trademark centers on a strong clinical experience producing exceptional intensivists.  The fellows are offered a unique twelve or twenty-four month experience rotating between St. Louis University and Mercy St. Louis Hospitals with exposure to varied intensive care unit populations including medical, surgical, trauma, neurological, neurosurgical, cardiac and vascular patients.  The St. Louis University School of Medicine Critical Care and Pulmonary Critical Care Fellowships run in parallel strengthening both programs by sharing faculty, rotations, and educational experiences.  The responsibility of the intensive care unit team includes admitting, managing and discharging of the intensive care unit patients while maintaining communication with surgical/medical colleagues and consultants.  The St. Louis University School of Medicine Critical Care Fellowship Program offers a multidisciplinary experience that is not matched by many programs in the country.
