Critical Care Medicine | Fellowship | How to Apply
All applications for our EM/CCM curriculum (both ACCM and CCM tracts) are submitted through our program coordinator (Barb McKinney).
As part of the ACCM match process, we participate in the San Francisco Match's Central Application Service (where all documents are uploaded to a central repository). This process allows you to be considered for both ACCM and CCM tract slots. Please register with the San Francisco Match.
If you prefer to ONLY apply for a CCM training slot, please include a note in your introductory email that you only want to be considered for a Medicine CCM training slot. Our application process for the CCM tract requires a completed Application Form (Click here for form), 3 letters of recommendation, and personal statement.
If invited for an interview, we will request some supplemental information including:
- Curriculum Vitae
- Copy of In-service training exam scores
- Copy of Step 1, 2, 3 scores
The planned completion of an ACGME Emergency Medicine Residency Program is also expected.
(Corresponding entering PGY level of training)
We sponsor an approved ABA EM/CCM two-year multidisciplinary curriculum tract (Anesthesiology). Our program is approved for 9 ACGME ACCM slots annually.
We also have 3 annual ACGME CCM (Medicine) slots (fellow completes the same multidisciplinary two-year curriculum tract).
All of our EM/CCM Fellows (regardless of ACGME tract) complete basically the same two-year multidisciplinary critical care medicine fellowship training curriculum.

- Our CCM tract operates on a rolling timeframe and we do not participate in the Medicine match (with most applicants submitting their paperwork in the summer/late fall prior to their planned start academic cycle).
