Critical Care Medicine

Welcome to the section of Critical Care Medicine in the Division of Emergency Medicine at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Our mission is to prepare our residents to provide top notch care for critically ill emergency department patients. The care in the first few hours of the critically ill effect long-term outcomes. In rural settings, emergency physicians must be ready to independently stabilize and manage the sickest patients. In addition to our enthusiastic Emergency Medicine, Pulmonary, and Surgical Critical Care faculty, we have dually boarded faculty in Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. We are all excited to teach you critical care medicine while you are rotating in the ICU or on a high acuity shift in the ED. Through ICU rotations, regular didactics, and procedural training you will graduate from our program ready to confidently manage the sickest patients throughout your career.

For those with a particular interest in critical care medicine there will be opportunities for additional training, research, and critical care education. If you choose to pursue a critical care fellowship, we will make sure you are well prepared.
