Education & Training

In addition to patient care, education is a key commitment of the Division of Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine, and all levels of trainees from medical students to fellows receive training with the Critical Care faculty. The Division is approved to offer eight Critical Care fellowship positions annually. Vanderbilt’s wide variety of cases and high level of acuity provide an excellent source for training a broad spectrum of critical care skills. The faculty include board-certified anesthesiology, neurology, and surgical critical care physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
