Emergency Medicine - Critical Care Fellowship

The University of Iowa Emergency Medicine Critical Care Fellowship trains graduates of ACGME-accredited Emergency Medicine residency programs.  This two year curriculum has been approved by the American Board of Anesthesiology for Emergency Medicine graduates, and fellowship graduates will be board eligible in Anesthesiology Critical Care through the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM).

The University of Iowa has been home to respected fellowships in anesthesia critical care and pulmonary critical care for decades.  The Emergency Medicine Critical Care Fellowship is a distinct track of the Anesthesia Critical Care Fellowship that prepares emergency medicine graduates for a broad-based multi-specialty critical care practice.  As of 2023, we have accepted 14 Emergency Medicine trained fellows into this program.

Our fundamental philosophy is that practice in a multi-speciality intensive care unit is the most challenging practice environment in critical care, and we train our graduates to enter multidisciplinary practice.  Most non-academic intensive care units in the U.S. are not specialty-specific, so we offer broad based clinical training in medical, surgical, neurologic, and cardiac approaches to critical care to train comprehensive intensivists for broad-based clinical practice.
