Fellowship Program

The aim of the PCCM Fellowship program is to develop the next generation of academic leaders in the field of pediatric critical care medicine by training fellows to provide excellent care of critically ill pediatric patients, create new knowledge that can inform future practice, be effective and enthusiastic teachers, and serve as consultants to physicians in the community.

The PCCM fellowship is an accredited 3-year training program that has grown from 3 to 4 fellows per year, for a total of 12 fellows in 2018.  The fellowship is overseen by the Program Director, Felice Su, MD; Associate Director, Courtenay Barlow, MD; and Associate Director of Research, Cristina Alvira, MD. Clinical training is performed within the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, which averages over 1,500 medical and surgical admissions annually.
