Nurse Practitioner Critical Care Medicine

At Memorial Sloan Kettering, our Nurse Practitioner-driven model in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) allows our NPs to autonomously manage patient care in collaboration with an ICU attending physician. Our fellowship program is designed for new providers specializing in critical care medicine. Within the first three months of our program, fellows will have gone through a comprehensive ICU orientation focusing on how to manage critically ill and complex patient cases, collaborate with the multidisciplinary team, and obtain competency in clinical skills (e.g., bedside ultrasound, reviewing radiographs, inserting central lines). Afterward, NP fellows rotate through other specialty services including infectious disease, renal, radiology, and post anesthesia care unit. Lastly, in addition to clinical rotations, weekly didactics and lectures are given and each fellow is assigned a mentor throughout the year for support and guidance to ensure incremental goals are achieved.
