At Wake Forest School of Medicine, Critical Care Fellowships are one or two years in duration, depending upon prior training.

We accept physicians who have completed residency or subspecialty training in internal medicine and emergency medicine. Applicants with other specialty training are also considered.

Prior graduates of the fellowship programs have come from diverse backgrounds, including:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Internal medicine
  • Emergency medicine
  • Cardiology
  • Endocrinology
  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Pulmonary medicine
  • Hematology and oncology
  • Nephrology
  • Infectious disease

The fellowship is fully Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited and fulfills all requirements for board certification by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Program Goals

The Critical Care Fellowship offers a strong core of multidisciplinary critical care training and also allows fellows to tailor their education to the components of critical care that complement and expand their previous training.
