The Critical Care Medicine Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, provides you unique and unsurpassed critical care medicine training in all aspects of clinical practice, research, and education. Opportunities in these three areas enable the curriculum to be tailored to meet the specific needs of future clinical, educational, or investigative intensivists. 

Mayo Clinic's world-class specialists with diverse backgrounds provide a wealth of clinical expertise and research opportunities. Through a one or two-year program, the subspecialty training offers both theoretical and practical aspects of critical care medicine. A multidisciplinary team of intensivists collaborate to provide timely, effective care to patients with complex medical problems arising from hematological diseases, CART therapies, BMT, and solid organ transplantations. To ensure an optimal outcome for the patients, many therapeutic critical care procedures such as ECMO, MARS, VAD, and CRRT are routinely performed in the intensive care units.

The training is structured to provide an unprecedented experience with high levels of competence in managing patients with life-threatening illnesses for the independent critical care medicine practice. Your training program can be customized to meet your individual career goals.

Unique program highlights include:

  • Subspecialty experience and learning multidisciplinary approaches in the management of critically ill patients presenting with both commonly and uncommonly encountered diseases
  • A diverse patient population composed of local, regional, national, and international patients
  • Opportunities to teach Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine students, visiting students from other medical schools, and internal medicine residents
  • Extensive procedural experience and ancillary support
  • Dedicated time, mentoring, and support for meaningful clinical research and quality training
  • Elective rotations to meet your individual needs
  • Personalized career development plan and mentorship
  • State-of-the-art patient care and training facilities
  • High emphasis on fellows' wellness
  • Supportive program leadership with an open-door policy, that involve fellows in decision-making through different committees
  • Reasonable call schedule and duty hours

Mayo Clinic's favorable faculty ratio, large patient population, and state-of-the-art diagnostic, therapeutic, and research facilities combine to create a truly integrated educational experience. The "Mayo Clinic way" of graduate medical education ensures you will have the finest teaching and the broadest patient care experience possible during a busy, hands-on fellowship.
