Hartford Hospital in association with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine Emergency Medicine Residency, is proud to offer a 1 year fellowship in Emergency Critical Care and Resuscitation. This is a fellowship geared towards those emergency physicians who have an interest in learning and providing the most up to date advanced resuscitation techniques in the Emergency Department.
The goal of this fellowship is to graduate physicians who will become leaders in the field of Emergency Critical Care and Resuscitation
ED Critical Care fellows at Hartford Hospital are required to have completed an ABEM approved residency in Emergency Medicine.
The majority of the training will take place at Hartford Hospital, the University of Connecticut’s largest partnered teaching hospital, the region’s only level I trauma center, and one of the largest teaching hospitals in New England. It is the main tertiary referral center and has over 850 beds. The Emergency Department sees over 100,000 patients a year.
This is a clinical fellowship in which fellows will not only be able to train in Hartford’s Emergency Critical Care Unit (ECCU) but will also have an opportunity to rotate through various multispecialty ICUs and and obtain intensive training in ECMO and LVADs. With the newly developed and implemented Emergency Critical Care Unit, fellows will have the opportunity to work alongside fellowship-trained attendings caring for the most critically ill patients. They will be trained in advanced critical care ultrasound, and have an opportunity to further explore interests during elective and research times. In addition, there will be weekly didactics and monthly journal clubs to discuss the latest research in critical care.
