About the Program

Welcome to the Emergency Medicine Critical Care Multidisciplinary Fellowship. Critical care is one of the fastest growing subspecialties in emergency medicine, and the University of Iowa is offering a fully-accredited 2-year comprehensive, interdisciplinary fellowship to train the next generation of emergency medicine critical care leaders. Our program is based in the Department of Anesthesia with clinical rotations throughout the 705-bed University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and with cooperation from the Department of Emergency Medicine, the Department of Surgery, the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Occupational Medicine. Fellows will be training alongside fellows in other critical care fellowship programs, offering a rich environment for interdisciplinary training. Graduates will be eligible for certification through the American Board of Emergency Medicine Anesthesia Critical Care Medicine Pathway.
Our fundamental philosophy is:

  • To train excellent critical care clinicians with a broad multi-specialty critical care experience to manage diverse critical care patient populations in both academic and community settings,
  • To advance the specialty of emergency medicine-critical care through scientific discovery, medical education, and quality improvement through ICU administration, and
  • To develop leaders in emergency medicine to advocate for continuity of critical care from the prehospital environment through the emergency department, the intensive care unit, and recovery from critical illness.
