Einstein/Montefiore Division of Critical Care Medicine

Didactic Curriculum

From traditional lectures by world-renowned experts to hands-on simulator training sessions, our educational program is high yield, innovative, and extensive.  Key components of the curriculum include:

  1. Essentials of Critical Care Lecture Series
    These lectures are organized by organ system and are given year-round by faculty within the division as well as from other subspecialties.
  2. Case Conferences
    These occur weekly either as morbidity and mortality or as clinicopathological conferences.  Fellows participate in presentation and discussion as do colleagues from the Departments of Radiology and Pathology and the Division of Pulmonary Medicine.  The innovative audience-response system keeps everyone involved.
  3. Ultrasound Training Sessions
    These sessions provide fellows with the essential training to perform ultrasound-based procedures and perform and interpret focused ultrasound examinations of the chest, heart, abdomen, and blood vessels.
  4. Simulator Training Sessions
    These sessions train fellows to manage a wide variety of complex case scenarios and introduce them to devices used for difficult airway management and other emergent procedures.
  5. Case-Based Core Topics Series
    This monthly series provides fellows with key guidelines and articles to review, and then challenges them to put the evidence into practice using interactive case scenarios.
  6. Clinical Research Lecture Series
    A multi-session course in basic clinical research design, study interpretation including concerns for bias and confounding, data interpretation and presentation,  basic statistical methods and IRB submissions.
  7. Weekly Research Meetings
    Fellows involved in clinical research take part in these weekly meetings with our research group.
  8. CoBaTrICE Sessions
    Einstein/Montefiore is one of the first critical care fellowship programs to embrace the SCCM-endorsed Competency Based Training program in Intensive Care medicine for Europe and other regions.
  9. Journal Clubs and Board Reviews
    Monthly sessions that are facilitated by key clinical faculty members.
  10. Critical Care Grand Rounds
    Invited experts provide updates on emerging clinical research and advanced treatment modalities.
