Welcome to the Incoming Class of Adult Critical Care Medicine Fellows!

Tue, 07/29/2014

A warm welcome to the nineteen Adult Critical Care Medicine first year fellows!

For those fellows entering the Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program (MCCTP) at the University of Pittsburgh, July is a hectic month of balancing training with new clinical responsibilities. These future intensivists were attracted to this program by the diversity in patient care opportunities, including CCM’s 15 Intensive Care Units.

As incoming fellow Jennifer Yu says, “I chose CCM at Pitt because of the diverse and unique opportunities offered here. I'm able to incorporate my prior training and the expertise of the faculty here to develop my career goals.”

The fellows, who hail from all around the world, were also attracted to the program by the strength of the faculty, who operate as both teachers and investigators. “I think CCM offers an excellent clinical education where there is a strong focus on teaching,” says Sean DeChancie.

Five different Critical Care Fellowship programs, including Anesthesia, Neurology, Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and Internal Medicine, provide a rich multi-disciplinary approach to patient care. After they complete their fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh, one of the founding institutions of Critical Care Medicine, the fellows will join a long list of distinguished alumni.
