Critical Care

The Critical Care Medicine track is an intensive and immersive education and training program for Physician Assistants and Acute Care Nurse Practitioners to learn the advanced knowledge and technical skills necessary to become outstanding clinicians in the dynamic area of Critical Care Medicine. Participants will have the opportunity to be part of a multidisciplinary team who specialize in the treatment of critically ill and injured patients.

ACP Fellows will rotate across different Northwell campuses where they will learn the fundamental knowledge needed to manage ICU patients. Training will occur in a structured and mentored environment across a variety of specialty settings.  The year-long fellowship will focus on education and training in the following areas:

  • Medical Critical Care
  • EM Critical Care
  • Tele-ICU
  • Cardiac Critical Care
  • Cardiothoracic Critical Care
  • Neuro Critical Care
  • Surgical Critical Care
  • ECMO
  • Ventilator Management
  • Ultrasound
  • Acute Home Care
  • Palliative Care


Didactic Structure:

Our fellows will participate in a centralized curriculum that features an initial 3-week orientation to Northwell Health. In addition, one day each month, all ACP Fellows from the various specialty tracks will reconvene for a core series of learning activities specially designed to augment their on-site training.

  • One day a week will be reserved for traditional lectures, case studies, ACP presentations, diagnostic test interpretations and clinical scenarios. These didactics are designed to build solid medical knowledge and enhance critical thinking skills.
