Founded in 1990, the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship delivers advanced clinical training in a diverse, multicultural patient environment. The fellowship includes rotations at four leading healthcare systems in the Twin Cities and accepts two fellows per year.

Our two-year program is ideal for those planning to practice critical care medicine as their primary specialty. The first year curriculum is entirely clinical. Our second year includes four required clinical rotations, two months of elective clinical rotations, and six months of clinical research.

We welcome candidates from ACGME-accredited residencies in internal medicine and emergency medicine. In addition, the critical care fellowship can be completed in conjunction with the EM/IM residency at HCMC in a combined 6-year EM/IM/CC program.

Please visit the HCMC Critical Care Fellowship Website for more information.

EMRA’s Critical Care Division website also has helpful resources on EM Critical Care Fellowships.

About Us

The Department of Emergency Medicine is comprised of the physicians, physician-assistants and staff dedicated to the delivery of emergency medical services for HCMC. Emergency Medicine Faculty physicians provide emergency medical care, teach students of many types, and conduct research leading to innovation of emergency care.

Our Residency Program in Emergency Medicine, its residents, and its graduates are a source of great pride for our Department. It began in 1972 with two residents, years before recognition of the discipline of Emergency Medicine as a medical specialty. Today we match twelve residents per year in our three-year program.
