Specialty Fellowships

Neuro Critical Care  |  Cardiac Critical Care  |  Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS)


Advanced Fellowship in Paediatric Neuro Critical Care   

This is one year of advanced clinical training with a focus in neuro critical care medicine offered to physicians who are eligible to be certified to practice in paediatric critical care medicine (PCCM). The goals and objectives of the fellowship are to provide a year of additional academic clinical training focusing on the acute management of neurologic and neurosurgical disorders that affect critically ill children.

Dedicated rotations are focused on neurological diseases in PICU, neuromonitoring, neuroradiology including interventional neuroradiology, paediatric neurological surgery, epilepsy and neuro-electrophysiology, paediatric anaesthesiology, paediatric neuropathology, adult neurovascular ICU, adult neurotrauma ICU, paediatric rehabilitation clinic in acquired brain injury and paediatric stroke consultation.  The focused education program is aimed at developing expertise that would be valuable to a sub-specialist in neuro critical care in order to provide advanced care in large volume PICU programs.  

For more information please see the Overview of the Neuro Critical Care Fellowship

Advanced Fellowship in Paediatric Cardiac Critical Care    

This is a one year focused program on cardiac critical care training that is directed towards candidates who are eligible to sit for board examinations in general paediatric critical care in Canada, the U.S or an equivalent international jurisdiction after completing core training in an appropriate acuity exposure ACGME-accredited (or equivalent) program. The goals and objectives of the fellowship are to provide a year of advanced training focusing on the management of acutely ill peri-operative, postoperative and medical cardiovascular patients.  Selected candidates will be exposed to a large case-volume of complex postoperative patients in an 18-bed cardiac Critical Care Unit.  

Dedicated rotations in cardiac echocardiography, electrophysiology and interventional catheterization will be combined with potential elective experiences in heart failure or adult congenital heart disease. Advanced concepts and principles of peri-operative physiology will be emphasized through intensive exposure to preoperative decision-making, intra-operative care and postoperative management.  

Included in this experience will be opportunities in the operating room, cardiac anesthesia, cardiac perfusion as well as ample exposure to extracorporeal mechanical support using didactic, simulation, bedside and performance improvement strategies.

Advanced Fellowship in Paediatric Extracorporeal Life Support

This is one year of advanced clinical training with a focus in Paediatric Extracorporeal Life Support (ECLS) in Critical Care medicine offered to physicians who are eligible to be certified to practice in paediatric critical care medicine (PCCM) or cardiovascular surgery. The goals and objectives of the fellowship are to provide a year of additional academic clinical training focusing on the acute management of cardiac, respiratory, or renal failure that affect critically ill children suitable for extracorporeal life support technologies. The fellowship includes focused education in areas of cardiac, respiratory or renal failure to develop expertise that would be valuable to a sub-specialist with PCCM training. This fellowship will provide the fellow the ability to function in the role of a junior attending in the latter part of the training year. The focus at this point will be to coordinate patient management, team functioning, education.
