Overview

Overview

The ACCM Fellowship program at Cleveland Clinic began in 1985 under the leadership of Dr. John Lockrem and was accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2001. 

The need for surgical critical care services at Cleveland Clinic has expanded dramatically over the past few decades, both on the main campus and at the regional hospitals. We care for extremely complex, high acuity patients in our 30-bed surgical ICU (SICU) and 95-bed cardiothoracic and vascular ICU (CVICU). During their year of fellowship with us, our fellows rotate through, gain experience and expertise managing patients in the SICU, CVICU, Neuro ICU and community/regional hospital ICUs. The community ICU experience presents a unique clinical and educational opportunity to our fellows to recognize the differences between tertiary care centers and smaller community hospitals and learn optimal resource utilization. Cleveland Clinic has been ranked number one in the United States for Cardiac Care for over two decades, performing 5,000-6,000 cardiac surgical procedures every year. We perform over 200 liver transplants every year in addition to complex head and neck, urogenital, hepatobiliary and spine procedures. Our fellows gain extensive experience managing these complex patients in our ICUs, providing them with endless learning opportunities.

Our one-year ACGME accredited training program is one of the largest and most successful ACCM fellowship programs in the United States for many years, graduating ten fellows every year.  Thus far, over 149 fellows have graduated from fellowship program, and we are proud to see several of our graduates lead educational programs, ICUs and ECMO programs across the country.

The goal of our fellowship program is to:

  • Provide comprehensive clinical training in the care of critically ill patients.
  • Develop critical thinking skills applicable to any patient with single or multisystem organ failure.
  • Train the next generation of leaders in critical care medicine.

Curriculum & Didactics

Curriculum & Didactics

The Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine (ACCM) fellowship is a one-year fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This fellowship program aims to provide comprehensive training and experience in critical care medicine. During this year, the fellow will rotate in the following areas:

  1. Surgical ICU: This rotation comprises six modules (24 weeks). It broadly covers the clinical and cognitive components essential to the multidisciplinary practice of Critical Care Medicine, focusing on surgical critical care. The fellow cares for patients in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit in the main campus Cleveland Clinic. They perform consultations for potential ICU admissions, triage, admission, and management of critically ill patients.

    This rotation aims to provide the ACCM Fellow with the broad cognitive skills, knowledge and hands-on skills required for the care and management of critically ill surgical patients.

  2. Cardiothoracic ICU: This rotation comprises three modules (12 weeks). The rotation focuses exclusively on caring for patients in the CVICU after adult cardiothoracic surgery. During this rotation, the fellow will be a member of the CVICU team and provide care for patients under the supervision of the CVICU staff physician. The fellow will care for post-operative cardiac surgical patients, including those requiring heart and lung transplantation and Extracorporeal Life Support (left ventricular assist devices, VV /VA ECMO). The fellow will further improve skills regarding standard critical care procedures, including arterial and venous vascular access, ultrasonography, thoracentesis, bronchoscopy, and chest tube placement.

    This rotation aims to provide the ACCM Fellow with the broad cognitive skills, knowledge, and hands-on skills required to care for and manage critically ill cardiovascular surgical patients.

  3. Neuro ICU: This rotation comprises one module (4 weeks). This rotation broadly covers the clinical and cognitive components essential to the multidisciplinary practice of Critical Care Medicine, focusing on neurological critical care. Rotation in the Neuro‚ÄźICU offers a unique learning experience for the fellow in the evaluation and management of patients with central nervous system dysfunction requiring intensive care and monitoring in a tertiary hospital. They will learn the application of critical care principles in the care of patients with acute neurological conditions and acquire knowledge and clinical skills in emergency management of critically ill patients with stroke, hemorrhage, brain trauma, status epilepticus, CNS infection, and coma.

    This rotation aims to provide the ACCM Fellow with the broad cognitive skills, knowledge and hands-on skills required for the care and management of critically ill patients in the neuro ICU.

  4. Community Critical Care: This rotation comprises one module (4 weeks). It provides the Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine Fellow with the hands-on skills and intellectual background in the care of critically ill medical patients at a community hospital level. This rotation focuses on understanding the unique environments, strengths, and limitations of the community hospital's critical care practice compared to our main campus, tertiary care center.

  5. Echo-Transthoracic and Transesophageal: This rotation comprises one module (4 weeks). It focuses on the application of ultrasonography and echocardiography in the evaluation and management of critically ill patients. Fellows can spend all four weeks in either service (TEE OR TTE). They could also split the rotation and spend two weeks in TEE and two weeks in TTE. While on the TEE service, the fellow will work with cardiothoracic anesthesiologists in our cardiac operating rooms, performing and interpreting intraoperative pre- and post-cardiopulmonary bypass TEE exams.

    In addition to bedside exams, they will have daily echo rounds with staff cardiothoracic anesthesiologists. While on the TTE service, the fellow will be assigned to rotate with echo technicians on the cardiology service, learning the nuances of and fine-tuning their transthoracic image acquisition skills. In addition, fellows will survey staff intensivists in the SICU and CVICU to identify patients requiring bedside TTE/ultrasonography. The fellow will utilize ultrasonography to aid in critically ill patients' clinical evaluation and diagnosis. Ultrasonography includes bedside TTE and lung, vascular, and abdominal ultrasound. The fellow will spend time with staff intensivists to learn image optimization, pathology quantification, and image interpretation.

    The educational goal of this rotation is to provide the ACCM fellow with the broad skills required to successfully acquire and interpret ultrasound and echocardiographic exams in the critical care setting.

  6. Elective rotation: This rotation comprises a total of one module. Elective options include Critical Care Infectious Disease, Critical Care Nephrology, Nutritional Support, Bioethics, research, and Palliative Medicine.

Fellows also participate in various workshops: Vent workshop, Ultrasound workshop, End of Life, and OB-FCCS (Fundamental Critical Care – Obstetrics).

Fellow Life

Fellow Life

A message from our chief fellows

Welcome to Cleveland Clinic’s Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. We thank you for your interest in our program. We’re fortunate to be able to care for patients from all over the world across multiple intensive care units throughout the Cleveland Clinic network. Our faculty are wonderful educators, keen to train and teach the next generation of intensivists. We believe our fellowship training will help you become a compassionate, well-rounded intensivist!

Training and curriculum

Our one-year long fellowship is split up into 13 one-month rotations – this includes 6 months in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit, 2 months in the Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit, 1 month in the Coronary ICU, 1 month in Neuro-ICU, 1 month on community ICU, 1 month TEE/TTE, along with 1 month of electives. We have many elective choices including Nutrition, Palliative, Bioethics, TTE and many more.

From a didactive standpoint, Tuesday afternoons are our protected time whereby faculty usually give us lectures. We then have the rest of the afternoon to work on scholarly activity. Usually twice a month we have journal club, a smaller one with the residents along with a larger one involving the whole Intensive Care and Resuscitation Institute.

One of the strengths of our programs is the large number of workshops/simulations our faculty hosts for us throughout the year – a 3-day ECMO workshop, 2-day POCUS workshop, proning, ventilator management, discussing end-of-life care, intra-osseous needle placement, cricothyroidotomy, transvenous pacing. These are just some examples; however, it highlights the effort faculty put in to promote our education.

We have a $2,500 conference allowance, along with a $1,000 educational allowance which certainly helps! Furthermore, there are plenty of opportunities to get involved in quality improvement projects, and research along with attending our national conferences such as SCCM and SOCCA.

A day in the life of our fellows

Abey Abraham
Abey Abraham, MD

Hey everyone! My name is Abey Abraham, I’m one of the current Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine fellows! I’d like to share a typical day with you. Currently, I’m on my Surgical Intensive Care Unit rotation.

For me, the morning is when I usually work best, so I try and get most of my obstacle course race training (definitely check out a Spartan Race!) and studying in before work. I feel this routine helps free up my evenings to relax and spend time with family and friends. Morning sign-out is at 7:30 a.m.; I live about 20 minutes away from work, so I usually leave home around 6:30 a.m. On a Monday, I like to get there a bit earlier in order to read up about the patients in detail considering it’s a new unit.

During sign-out, the night team informs us of any major events overnight, along with the admissions. We have three SICU units, one of them is mainly NPs, whereas the other two are residents. There’s usually one fellow in each unit. We typically start morning rounds at 9:30 a.m., these usually finish at midday. During our rounds, the resident’s present patients in a system wise manner, as a team we then formulate a plan. As fellows, we have the autonomy to lead rounds with attending support. Our faculty is very inclusive of all learners during rounds that includes high school students, medical students, residents, and fellows from other specialties. Once rounds end around midday, we grab lunch from the cafeteria (there’s a Subway, Aladdin’s. taco/pizza/burger station, plus a salad bar. Panera is close by too!)

Usually in the afternoon, I’ll help the residents with any jobs remaining from the morning rounds. Once jobs are done, I enjoy teaching a pertinent topic, such as the different types of vasopressors, or TEG interpretation. We have Anesthesia Residents from intern to CA-3 year, along with interns from many other specialties (Urology, Orthopedics, Gynecology). The diverse nature of our SICU is very conducive to education, both textbook and teaching resident’s procedural skills.

Our sign-out is at 5 p.m., and usually we leave work by around 5:30 p.m. In the evenings, I love spending time with my wife and baby, or just hanging out with the residents and my co-fellows. Cleveland has so much to offer, there are almost 10 dessert spots (check out Mango Mango!), four climbing gyms, over 75 miles of trail with a National Park which is perfect for running and hiking!

I’ve truly enjoyed my fellowship experience thus far, I feel a real sense of responsibility as a fellow, and I’m well supported by the attendings. I completed Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology Fellowship last year at Cleveland Clinic, so I’ve already spent some time in the CVICUs. During this rotation, we get to take care of patients with LVAD/RVADs/Impella’s/ECMOs, it’s an amazing educational experience. The year goes by quickly, alongside the clinical work, most of us are involved in scholarly activity too, along with studying for boards. Even though it’s a busy year, the faculty and our mentors are always willing to help us! I can talk about our fellowship and Cleveland for hours, hopefully, we can do it in person soon!
