Over the two years, the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship is comprised of:

  • Minimum 13 blocks of PICU
  • 1 block of pediatric anesthesiology
  • 1 block of pediatric cardiology
  • 1 block of pediatric palliative care

Fellows may spend a total of three months in the two years doing rotations away from Ottawa. Electives done in the past have included pediatric cardiac intensive care, toxicology, neonatology and anesthesiology.

Most of the fellowship is focused on acquisition of knowledge and skills with the fellow following patients under the supervision of the attending staff and doing in-house call. Upon successful completion of the first 24 blocks, the fellow has the opportunity to act as a junior attending, doing call from home and acting in a more supervisory role.
