APP Adult Critical Care Fellowship

About the Program:

The Lee Health Adult Critical Care Medicine NP/PA APP Fellowship is a one-year training program for fully licensed and certified PAs and NPs. Our program is unique in that it combines a highly detailed competency-based curriculum with hands-on learning in the clinical setting. Through didactic and hands-on modalities, the APP fellow will be provided with specialty training in the expert management of critically ill patients in the intensive care unit setting. 


Fellowship experiences include, but are not limited to:

  • Surgical patients — Fellows are expected to extend their knowledge of general post-operative care, surgical complications, and acute post op pain management, as well as further their understanding of ventilator and vasopressor support.
  • Medical patients — The fellow will gain knowledge and experience with acute internal medical diagnoses and treatments. Fellows are expected to maximize their knowledge base about ventilatory modalities, inotropic/vasopressor support, antimicrobial therapy, and nutritional requirements for the critically ill patient.
  • Neurological/Neurosurgical patients — The fellow will gain knowledge on various neurological impairments including management of cerebrovascular accident, seizures, intracerebral hemorrhages, as well as post-operative care of the neurosurgical patient.
