The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital is known nationwide as one of the top programs for Critical Care Medicine. Our ACGME- approved 2-year training program provides outstanding clinical education leading to board eligibility in Critical Care Medicine by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is designed to prepare fellows for academic or clinical practice in various areas of critical care medicine. We emphasize multidisciplinary training and have previously trained fellows with backgrounds in Internal Medicine, Emergency Medicine, combined Emergency and Internal Medicine, Nephrology, Cardiology, and Infectious Disease. We believe the multidisciplinary nature of our program is unique and leads to a more robust learning environment. Our program focuses on evidence based clinical training with robust volumes, an underserved patient population, and exposure to various subspecialities of critical care medicine. Fellows also benefit from instruction and mentorship from clinical leaders and researchers in critical care medicine.

Our Critical Care Fellowship is complemented by an array of unique training opportunities i.e. extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), pulmonary hypertension and transplant, that provide advanced training in different areas of critical care medicine. This exposure enhances the educational experience for our fellows and offers various options for research endeavors. Many of these opportunities are unique to our fellowship and are testaments to our commitment to excellence and innovation in medical education.
