Fellowship in Emergency Critical Care

The changing landscape of health care has resulted in an increase in the delivery of critical care in the emergency department. Although the emergency department length of stay is brief compared with the total length of hospitalization, physiologic determinants of outcome may be established before an ICU admission. The BWH fellowship in critical care focuses on the acute care needs of the sickest patients seen in the emergency department.

MGH-BCM Space Medicine Fellowship

The Massachusetts General Hospital – Baylor College of Medicine Space Medicine fellowship provides advanced specialty training program to bring terrestrial standards of care to the extraterrestrial environment.
The two-year program for Emergency Medicine residency graduates is designed to train experts in clinical care, risk management, medical system design, research, and operational considerations supporting human activities in space.
Additionally, it is our firm belief that one must first be an outstanding terrestrial doctor to practice outstanding Space Medicine. To that end both campuses protect time for fellows to maintain clinical competency.
The program is administered by the Departments of Emergency Medicine at MGH and BCM, as well as the Center for Space Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine.  We work closely with our partners at MIT AeroAstro, Harvard Medical School, the Translational Research Institute for Space Health, the Departments of Emergency Medicine at MGH and BCM, and commercial spaceflight partners. The fellowship is housed in the MGH Division of SPEAR Medicine.
