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. For many of these future intensivists, the diversity in patient care opportunities and the range of experiences to be encountered in CCM’s fourteen Intensive Care Units were just a few of the draws of our training program.
The fellows, who hail from all around the world and the United States, were also attracted to the program by the strength of the faculty, who operate as both teachers and investigators. Incoming fellow Muhammad Tahseen says, “For me, it is a dream come true to be trained by the exemplary intensivists here at the University of Pittsburgh. It is a wonderful opportunity to be coached by the best in the field in providing exemplary care for our critically ill patients, and being compassionate with them and their families.”
Five different Critical Care Fellowship programs—Anesthesiology, Neurocritical Care, Surgical Critical Care, Emergency Medicine, and Internal Medicine—provide fellows with a rich multidisciplinary 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.
