The Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine received ACGME approval to train emergency or internal medicine residency graduates in critical care medicine within our PCCM fellowship program. We have been approved for two fellowship slots (one per year for the two year fellowship). Our program is designed for Emergency Medicine (EM) graduates based on our collaboration with the Department of Emergency Medicine, the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (MCIRCC), the medical school, and a UMHS directive to expand care of the critically ill. Dr. Kyle Gunnerson, Associate Professor Emergency Medicine, will serve as the Associate Program Director for the EM-CCM trainees under the oversight of Dr. Kevin Chan, PCCM Fellowship Director.

The ED-CCM program is a two year fellowship that involves rotations in the CCMU, NICU, CCU, CVC-ICU, ED-ICU, SICU, Palliative Care, nutrition and several electives.  The EM-CCM fellow will be rotating in the CCMU three months each year. We are excited about this new Critical Care educational opportunity with the ED and other critical care units.
