The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Children's Mercy was accredited in 2008 and remains continually accredited. We are recruiting for 2 fellows per year.
Our program is designed to maintain balance between education and service; humanities and science; and personal and professional satisfaction. This balance will, we believe, encourage our fellows to think broadly while preparing them to make educated career choices that best fit their professional and personal goals.
Our fellowship has historically been smaller than others at centers of similar clinical size, previously accepting one fellow yearly. This has permitted increased attention to the individual needs of our fellows both in their clinical training and academically in their research projects, with a goal of tailoring training for each individual’s needs. With the 2018 recruitment cycle, we increased the number of fellows accepted into the program to two per year. We believe this will not affect our ability to individualize training and will foster the valuable inter-fellow support, training, and camaraderie that comes with larger fellowships.
