The faculty will work closely with each fellow throughout their three years of training to tailor the experience to meet individual career aspirations, with a specific goal to create an environment of collegial scholarship and apprenticeship for the trainees that fosters learning for both the fellows and faculty. Our curriculum will include a structured core lecture series, case conferences, journal clubs, research presentations, and quality improvement conferences, along with a high-fidelity simulation medical education curriculum to enhance the trainee’s team leadership, clinical, and procedural skills.  The Pediatric Critical Care division at the Mount Sinai Kravis Children’s Hospital is comprised of 15 ICU beds in the newly renovated pediatric ICU , 5 telemetry beds ,and a newly built 6 bedded Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care unit opened in March 2019, with a total of >1200 admissions a year.  The units are traditionally “closed units” in which the pediatric critical care team is primarily responsible for the care of all medical and surgical patients, with 24 hour in house attending coverage.
