Welcome to the Adult Multidisciplinary Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Geisinger. Our fellowship offers a dynamic and innovative experience for physicians who want to become skilled critical care clinicians. In addition to an excellent, diversified experience in clinical critical care, we provide the opportunity for learning about the business of critical care, telemedicine, ethics, communication, state of the art simulation, QI/QA, education and leadership.
Our academic hospital is a major referral center and offers specialized experience in advanced cardiac care, mechanical circulatory devices, transplant and one of the largest genetic projects in the world. The hospital environment is academic in nature, as we are a main site for medical students from the Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine. We have multiple specialized closed ICUs including two medical surgical units, a cardiothoracic/vascular unit, trauma (Level 1 trauma center) unit and neuroscience unit (Comprehensive Stroke Center). We have a brand-new state of the art simulation center where we practice procedures and run scenarios with other fellows and residents. Our electronic ICU (eICU) platform allows us to provide critical care services to all hospitals within Geisinger (12 campuses) as well as several other hospitals in central Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Our fellowship offers the opportunity to learn from a diverse multidisciplinary staff, all board certified in critical care medicine from fields including internal medicine, pulmonary, general surgery, trauma surgery, anesthesia and others. Many faculty members hold advanced degrees in business administration or philosophy/ethics. We also have an excellent group of critical care advanced practice providers, and an equally exemplary group of critical care nurses. We strive for a collaborative team-based approach to the delivery of critical care medicine for the patients we serve.
At Geisinger, we take pride in being at the cutting edge of technological innovation. This fellowship is designed to train future leaders in intensive care medicine. This two-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited fellowship is offered to three applicants.
During the first year, fellows rotate through all ICUs including a month of trauma, two months dedicated to point of care ultrasound, anesthesia, scholarship and electives. During the second year, fellows have similar ICU rotations with the addition of night coverage, eICU, critical care outreach service, research and dedicated “junior attending” months.
