The Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital (JHACH) Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) fellowship is a 36 months training program with the aim of training clinically excellent, academic intensivists. The fellowship includes rigorous, hands-on experiences in neurocritical care, trauma management, extracorporeal life support (ECLS), continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT), the full spectrum mechanical ventilation strategies, and other innovative therapeutics for the care of critically ill children. Our high-volume, tertiary pediatric referral center has expertise in pediatric emergency medicine, expanded sub-specialty surgical and medical services, and advanced pediatric transport supporting the greater Tampa Bay, Southwest Florida, and Central Florida regions.
During PCCM fellowship, a diverse set of training including procedural skills, leadership, quality improvement, clinical and translational research, and interpersonal relations, and communication skills. These domains will be addressed through increasing levels of autonomy and responsibility throughout training, close interaction with JHACH PCCM faculty, participation in a robust education curriculum, mentored scholarly academic investigation, and serial performance assessments.
Fellows are expected to manage, educate, and lead a multidisciplinary team including advanced practice providers, resident physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, respiratory therapists, social workers, case managers and other allied health staff.
