Critical care finds success in the multiprofessional team. Each team member brings specific knowledge and skills that enable the problem solving and critical thinking required to secure the highest quality care and to improve outcomes.

Undergraduate students within healthcare disciplines are engaged in gaining mastery of profession-specific content while deciding the focal direction for their professional practice.

Multiple disciplines are represented within the critical care team. Critical care practice can be visualized as a tree, with each limb representing a discipline or medical specialty. Major branches include anesthesiology, neurology, nursing, pediatrics, pharmacy, pulmonology, and surgery.

For a list of critical care medicine fellowship programs, access the List of Programs by Specialty on the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education's (ACGME) website.

The United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties maintains information on fellowships for those interested in neuroscience critical care training programs.
