CCM Fellowship Program Excels in Critical Care Knowledge Assessment Exam from SCCM

Mon, 05/23/2016

The results of The Society of Critical Care Medicine’s Multidisciplinary Critical Care Knowledge Assessment Program (MCCKAP) were recently released, with the Department of Critical Care Medicine’s Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program (MCCTP) receiving high marks. The MCCKAP is an online examination used to assess critical care fellowships across the country, and provides program directors with three particular benefits—helping them to “prepare fellows for the subspecialty board examinations in critical care, identify specific areas of strength and weakness for each fellow with lists of references and key terms for missed questions, and assess results for each individual fellow and the overall program as well as the institution’s national ranking.”

Our fellowship program’s median score for all fellows was above the national median (149 vs. 140). In addition, all of our specialty-specific MCCKAP mean scores exceeded their national equivalents.

CCM had two fellows with top scores, Hitesh Gidwani and Daniel Glass.
