The Pediatric Critical Care Medicine (PCCM) Fellowship at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University provides a broad, multidisciplinary educational program developed to train pediatricians to become successful and competent critical care clinicians, educators, and researchers.
The Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship is an ACGME accredited three-year program for board eligible/certified physicians in Pediatrics or Medicine-Pediatrics. The program is accredited for 3 PICU fellows and matches one trainee per year.
The 36 month fellowship curriculum includes:
All of the program’s clinical activities are housed in the Children’s Hospital of Georgia at AU which is a 149-bed, 220,000-square-foot facility that has a dedicated 14 bed combined medical-surgical PICU and a 6 bed pediatric intermediate care unit.
The research component draws upon already existing programs at AU such as the Pediatric Subspecialty Fellows’ Clinical Research Design Course and may offer protected support for those interested in pursuing a Certificate in Clinical and Translational Science Program or Masters in Public Health.
