Program Description & History

 Since its inception in 2009, the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Montefiore has trained over 15 critical care physician assistants. The program is currently accredited by the Association of Post Graduate Physician Assistant Programs and specializes in producing physician assistants capable of managing every type of critically ill patient. Our physician assistants go on to become employed in medical, surgical, neurosurgical, and cardiothoracic ICU’s throughout the country. Our balanced rotational curriculum exposes our residents to a wide variety of clinical settings, allowing them to obtain the broad skill set required of the modern critical care physician assistant.
