Our program consists of two fellows who are very involved in every aspect of patient care within the division. Fellows gain clinical experience via rotations at The University of Kansas Hospital and the Kansas City VA Medical Center.
The University of Kansas Hospital is consistently rated as the best hospital in Kansas City and Kansas. It is also the primary subspecialty hospital for a large area of the central US, covering all of Kansas, western Missouri and parts of Arkansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa.
The one-year critical care fellowship program provides robust clinical training that creates physicians to be leaders of their field and community.
Program Director’s Letter:
Thank you for your interest in our Critical Care Fellowship Program. I am proud of the program that we have established here at the University of Kansas Medical Center, and it is an honor to represent it as the program director.
Clinically, our program offers a robust and comprehensive training experience. The University of Kansas Health System is home to one of the largest medical intensive care units in the country with both high volume and acuity.
Our fellows, in close collaboration with supportive attendings, are the leaders in the care of critically ill patients within the health system, including complex critical care that stems from our high-volume bone marrow and solid organ transplant patient populations. The most fulfilling part of my job is watching our fellows grow into procedurally competent, effective leaders and true content experts.
Our fellows are truly the heart and soul of our program and divisional culture. They bring a refreshing energy and drive for learning that endlessly pushes me and my colleagues to reach new heights. We truly are a family at the University of Kansas, and it is an honor to have you consider us as your new home for the upcoming year.
