Specialists in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine and the Division of Anesthesia provide dedicated, continuous care to patients who are critically ill and require advanced monitoring and care in the intensive care unit setting. They are specially trained in the care of critically ill patients and work in close collaboration with anesthesiologists, surgeons and other specialists in the hospital.
Critical care medicine specialists at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, manage patients with multisystem organ failure, central nervous system crises, cardiac failure, recent transplantations and other life-threatening problems.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to the pulmonary and critical care faculty at Mayo Clinic throughout your training in the Critical Care Internal Medicine Fellowship.
The fellowship offers a mentorship program. You are assigned a dedicated faculty mentor who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
