Announcing the UPMC Critical Care Medicine Advanced Practice Provider Postgraduate Residency program based on the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital medical campus in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Acute care medicine fields such as critical care medicine are fast-paced, challenging and require motivated and dedicated individuals but also require a knowledgebase and skill set difficult to obtain quickly or effectively in a traditional on-boarding phase.
This program was initially born out of a need to train advanced practice providers how to deliver ICU care in the numerous ICUs throughout our facilities and ultimately for hospitals nationwide. We began developing our program in 2011 and are currently training our second class. Residents undergo an intense training for 12 months alongside our physician fellows in the Multidisciplinary Critical Care Training Program, rotate through approximately 7 specialty ICUs, and attend daily conferences, labs, and simulations pertinent to the care of surgical and medical ICU patients. Elective rotations are offered. Our residents are provided with a stipend for their year of training as well as a full benefit package including educational allowance.
We are now opening a new application cycle for a start date at the beginning of July 2014. Please see the following website for further details as well as our online application.
