OHSU's Critical Care Medicine fellowship has one out of match spot available for a July 2018 start date.

The OHSU Anesthesia Critical Care Medicine fellowship offers trainees the opportunity to learn critical care in a variety of general and specialized high-volume, high-acuity ICUs. Core rotations adhere to ABA and ACGME guidelines and are done in the Cardiothoracic ICU, Neurosciences ICU and VA Surgical ICU. ICU electives in Medical, Pediatric, Trauma and General Surgical ICUs are also available. Critical care education is enhanced with elective rotations tailored to the interests of the individual fellow. Some of the more popular elective opportunities include nephrology, radiology, palliative care, scholarly activity, medical ethics, echo and heart failure. Research opportunities abound in our department, which ranks in the top ten in the country for NIH funding.

Multidisciplinary critical care didactic conferences occur on a daily basis for the first six weeks of the academic year, then weekly for the remainder of the year. Monthly conferences include a topic centered presentation and journal club, and a hands-on echo conference.

Our department plays a significant role in Critical Care Medicine at OHSU. We are a 501 bed hospital and have 80 adult ICU beds in total with five adult ICU teams at the University hospital, and two additional ICUs at our affiliated VA Hospital.

17 bed trauma unit

20 bed cardiosurgical unit

17 bed neurosurgical unit

26 bed Medical ICU

All of our core units operate as closed type ICUs, with emphasis on multidisciplinary and collaborative care. As OHSU is the ultimate referral center for Oregon and several neighboring regions, exposure to high acuity and clinically complex case material is abundant.

Portland is a beautiful city which holds many attractions. Located near mountains and beaches, many consider this to be a perfect place to live. The city has art, culture, and all the amenities of much larger cities, while maintaining easy access to outdoor activities and a high quality of life.
