Research Experience

Each fellow in the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program is expected to participate inquality improvement activities related to the care of critically ill patients.

Varied interests of the faculty afford the fellow broad exposure to a variety of investigative opportunities. Current clinical areas of interest include quality improvement projects regarding sepsis, ICU delirium,airway management and safety and critical care ultrasound in shock.


Research/Scholarly Activities are required for each Fellow—specifically, to develop and complete a hypothesis-driven research project under the supervision of faculty mentor(s), with the goal of submission of a manuscript for peer-reviewed publication. 

Each fellow will also be required to write one scholarly work such as reviews, book chapters, and case report/series, under faculty mentorship, with at least one scholarly work submitted for presentation at a national conference.

Quality Improvement/Patient Safety/Disparities Reduction Activities are emphasized.

Each fellow will be required to develop a structured, faculty-mentored project to identify an area within the context of Critical Care Medicine practice, education or research that requires intervention, and to devise and implement a plan for improvement.

For additional information, contact the Fellowship program director, manager or coordinator.
