Children's Hospital Colorado is a free-standing children's hospital affiliated with the University of Colorado. We offer a pediatric critical care fellowship designed for board-eligible pediatricians planning a career devoted to the care of the critically ill child.
Second- and third-year residents rotating through the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) are exposed to a medically and culturally diverse patient population, both culturally and medically. Placed in a pediatric hospital with 314 beds and serving a seven state catchment area, the PICU has 32 dedicated beds and accepts approximately 1,600 admissions each year with roughly half being medical and half surgical in nature. The PICU enjoys full medical and surgical sub-specialty support allowing for exposure of the trainee to the full spectrum of critical illness in pediatrics. In addition to our Fellow and Resident educational programs, our PICU welcomes 4th year medical students with an interest in intensive care and strong letters of recommendation who wish to experience a sub-internship. We also provide clinical rotations for midlevel practitioner students (PA and NP) on a select basis, and a one-day shadow experience for EMS personnel.
