The University of Chicago will participate in the San Francisco (SF) Match. The SF website link is https://www.sfmatch.org, select “Specialties” then click on “Critical Care Anesthesiology”. There you can find specifics about the match.
The Critical Care faculty at the University of Chicago have collaborated to create a multi-disciplinary Critical Care fellowship that affords trainees access to the entire scope of Critical Care medicine practiced at the University of Chicago. The clinical training program is designed to be tailored to the needs of individual fellows, but will incorporate clinical time sufficient to fulfill ABA requirements for Critical Care board eligibility. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in patient care, supervise residents, and teach medical students in many of the intensive care units at the University of Chicago Medical Center, including the Surgical Intensive Care Unit, the Medical Intensive Care Unit, the Burn Unit, the Neurology/Neurosurgery Intensive Care Unit, and the Cardiothoracic Surgery Intensive Care Unit. Three months of elective time can be spent participating in clinical or basic science research projects. A variety of clinical electives are available to fellows, including echocardiography, radiology, and nephrology/acute dialysis. A second year of combined research or clinical training is available.
The flexible clinical and non-clinical curriculum allows fellows to design a Critical Care training curriculum that will best prepare them for their subsequent career. A typical fellowship incorporates two months MICU, three months SICU/Burn Unit, three months CT ICU, one month Neuro ICU, and three months of elective time.
Program in knowledge enrichment - Fellows participate in weekly didactic lectures including weekly case presentations, journal clubs and review of current clinical concepts. These lectures are advanced in content designed specifically for Fellows.
Program in echocardiography – fellows spend one month in the cardiology echo lab learning the basics of image acquisition and interpretation. This is followed by a structured didactic curriculum designed to achieve testamur certification through the cardiology echo board exam (ASCe). Most recently, previous Fellow Dr. Elizabeth Healy achieved Testamur certification in ASCe.
