DIVISION OF CRITICAL CARE

Fellowships

Physicians who have completed a pediatric residency are accepted to train, apprentice and receive mentorship from the faculty of the program. While supervised, clinical experience is certainly an important facet of this training, it is not the responsibility of the fellow to replace the faculty member at the bedside nor reduce the clinical responsibility of the faculty member. The faculty serve as a resource and convenience during the training.

Fellowships are available through The UT Health Science Center at San Antonio, Department of Pediatrics Division of Pediatric Critical Care and Pediatric Hospitalist training.


Vision for the Fellowship of Critical Care Medicine

The Division of Critical Care Medicine of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio envisions a program in which general pediatricians who are board certified or eligible, and possess a desire to subspecialize in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine will receive training under the tutelage of qualified academic critical care practitioners in both the clinical and basic science of critical care medicine.We emphasize the science of medicine combined with an appropriate appreciation of the art of medicine to provide humane patient and family-centered care.We also strive to prepare our trainees to contribute to the fund of scientific knowledge through either clinical or basic science research.Training received with successful completion of this program will prepare one to undergo and successfully pass examination by the sub-board of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine of the American Board of Pediatrics and to practice pediatric critical care medicine in either an academic or private practice setting.
