Critical Care Medicine

The GW critical care unit is a 48-bed mixed Med-Surg ICU, which includes the care of patients following trauma, cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery and of all the medical and surgical subspecialties managed by several ICU teams.

The GW Critical Care Fellow, regardless of program pathway, is involved in the care of all of these patients, and through their training will develop expertise in the management of critically ill patients across these disciplines. The diversified faculty composed of faculty based in Internal Medicine, Surgery, Anesthesiology, and Pulmonology as well as strong relationships among subspecialties at GW further creates an environment of collegiality and scholarship.

This fellowship is not for everyone. Exposure to a such a large and varied patient population requires strong organizational and prioritization skills along with considerable learning capacity. However, this effort is rewarded with a comprehensive training afforded by a breadth of clinical experience that is nearly unparalleled compared to other critical care programs in the United States.
