Critical Care Medicine Fellowship

Mission

To train future academic leaders in pediatric critical care medicine.

We seek highly motivated individuals with diverse backgrounds to join our division. Our faculty provide excellent mentorship in both clinical practice and research to prepare trainees for successful careers in which they will advance the science and practice of pediatric critical care medicine.

An academic career requires individuals to be internally driven. We provide an environment in which trainees can pursue their academic passion. Individuals who are self-starters and self-finishers will thrive in our program.

Overview

The University of Washington PCCM fellowship program was established in 1988 and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Fellows gain clinical experience in the Pediatric and Cardiac ICUs at Seattle Children's Hospital, the Trauma/Burns ICU at Harborview Medical Center, and rotations in Anesthesia. To prepare for an academic career, fellows pursue scholarly activity under mentorship from faculty within Pediatric Critical Care Medicine and throughout the University of Washington system, according to their academic interests.

Pediatrics Critical Care Fellowship Faculty

Curriculum

PCCM fellowship training combines comprehensive clinical training with a structured educational curriculum and mentored scholarship activity to prepare fellows for careers in academic pediatric critical care. The 3-year program focuses on developing core competencies specified by the American Board of Pediatrics. Fellows who have already completed an ACGME-accredited pediatric subspecialty fellowship may apply for a 2-year training program, provided that they met the ABP scholarly activity requirements in their first fellowship.

Clinical Training

Incoming fellows participate in an intensive two-week “Boot Camp” which includes a core lecture series, PALS recertification, PFCCS training, procedural training using simulation, and an ECLS workshop.

Pediatric Intensive Care Unit – Seattle Children’s Hospital:

  • The PICU at Seattle Children’s Hospital is a mixed medical/surgical service that is the major tertiary pediatric critical care referral center for the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
  • Fellows direct clinical care for children with the full spectrum of pediatric critical illness under the supervision of PCCM faculty.
  • Fellows are the leaders of the hospital code blue, rapid response, and ECPR (extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation) teams and evaluate all patients in the emergency department prior to PICU admission.
  • Fellows join PCCM faculty in providing medical control for pediatric patients transported by the Seattle Children’s Pediatric Transport Team and Airlift Northwest.
  • Fellows teach pediatric and emergency medicine residents on their PICU rotations.
  • Fellow rotations include 7-day stretches of daytime clinical service and in-house overnight call.

Cardiac Intensive Care Unit – Seattle Children’s Hospital:

  • The CICU service provides critical care for neonates, infants and children with congenital and acquired heart disease. The Seattle Children’s Heart Center is the major provider of comprehensive pediatric cardiac care in the region and the CICU service supports active programs in congenital heart surgery, cardiac transplantation, heart failure management, electrophysiology, and pulmonary hypertension.
  • Fellows are first-line care providers and direct clinical care for children with cardiac disease under the direct supervision of CICU faculty.
  • Fellow rotations include 7-day stretches of daytime clinical service and in-house overnight call.

Trauma/Burns Intensive Care Unit – Harborview Medical Center:

  • Harborview Medical Center (HMC) is the major trauma referral center for the Pacific Northwest region.
  • Fellows direct care in collaboration with surgical services, including trauma surgery, neurosurgery, and burns for all patients under the age of 18 under the supervision of PCCM faculty.
  • Fellows provide procedural sedation for children receiving wound care for major burn injuries under the supervision of HMC PCCM faculty.
  • Fellows teach pediatric residents on their HMC rotations.
  • Fellow rotations include 7-day stretches of clinical service that include home call.

Airway/Anesthesia/Sedation – Seattle Children’s Hospital:

  • Fellows receive comprehensive training in airway management, anesthesia, and sedation from the PCCM and Anesthesia Department faculty at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
  • First year fellows gain airway management skills learn basic principles of pediatric anesthesia in the operating room under the supervision of Anesthesia faculty.
  • Second year fellows develop procedural sedation skills by providing sedation outside of the operating room under the supervision of Anesthesia faculty.

Scholarship

We believe that successful academic careers start by identifying an area of academic interest, contributing iteratively to new knowledge, and growing through proactive mentorship. Examples of areas of research focus within the PCCM Division are listed below. We encourage PCCM fellows to pursue their academic interests and help them to find mentorship either within the PCCM Division or elsewhere throughout the University of Washington system. Fellows all have a unique Scholarship Oversight Committee made up of faculty mentors who guide fellows in their academic endeavors and ensure they are making progress toward their career goals. Recent PCCM fellows have focused on basic, clinical, and translational research; bioethics; quality improvement/ICU administration; medical education; epidemiology; outcomes/health services research; and global health among other areas.

Fellows have access to graduate coursework through the University of Washington, including certificate programs and master’s degrees in Biostatistic, Epidemiology, Global Health, Health Services and Bioethics. Fellows must seek approval from their program director prior to enrolling in a graduate degree program.

All fellows at Seattle Children’s Hospital are part of the Fellows College, which provides additional professional development training in its core didactic series.

Areas of research focus:

INFLAMMATION RESEARCH

  • Active basic, clinical and translational research programs focused on sepsis, acute lung injury, and shock.

CLINICAL RESEARCH

  • Long-term outcomes, including post-discharge quality of life, emotional, and cognitive outcomes following septic shock, acute respiratory failure, or trauma; obesity and vascular endothelial dysfunction following the Fontan operation

Seattle Children's Hospital is a 370-bed hospital and home to an award-winning, state-of-the-art PICU and the University of Washington Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. Seattle Children's serves the largest geographic area of any children's hospital in the country and is the sole academic pediatric medical center for Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (WWAMI). Seattle Children’s is the major pediatric extracorporeal life support (ECLS) referral center for the region, and approximately 50 children per year receive ECLS support in the PICU, CICU and NICU. Seattle Children’s has an active solid organ transplant service that performs 40-45 liver, kidney and small bowel transplants per year. In addition, Seattle Children’s is part of the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance and provides care for children and young adults with cancer, including hematopoietic stem cell transplants and CAR-T cell therapies.

The Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) has 38 single-patient beds to care for critically ill children with medical and surgical disease up to age 21. Of the 2000 annual PICU admissions, approximately 600 are surgical. Three separate critical care teams provide multidisciplinary, family-centered care to all patients. Two teams have pediatric residents, a PCCM fellow, and a PCCM attending physician. The third team has advanced practice providers and a PCCM attending physician. Critical care teams participate in joint bedside rounds with hematology-oncology, bone marrow transplant, hepatic and intestinal failure and solid organ transplant teams. Additional subspecialty consultants may join bedside rounds at the request of the critical care team.

The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) has 20 single-patient beds to care for children with congenital and acquired heart disease, both medical and surgical. The CICU has 700 annual admissions, including 400 cardiopulmonary bypass cases per year. Seattle Children’s is the major regional pediatric heart transplant center and performs 15-20 heart transplants per year. Newborns with congenital heart disease are cared for in the CICU with Neonatology consulting. Two critical care teams provide family-centered care to all patients. Both teams have fellows from PCCM, cardiology, and anesthesia, advanced practice providers and a CICU attending physician. Care teams participate in joint bedside rounds with cardiac surgery, heart failure and inpatient cardiology teams.
