The Division of Critical Care Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital participates in the Electronic Residency Application Services (ERAS) Program as well as the NRMP Match Program. Our fellowship is designed to educate physicians interested in pursuing an academic career in pediatric critical care medicine.

We welcome applications for fellowship training from all interested individuals who meet the application requirements. Fellows currently in the program have come from a variety of training programs throughout the country. Common to staff and fellows is an interest and curiosity in the many facets of caring for a critically ill child, and a dedication to advancing the field through an academic career.
