Fellow Education

Founded in the 1970s by Drs. Daniel L. Levin and Frances C. Morriss, the Fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care was one of the first of its kind in the world.

With the objective of providing excellent training in pediatric critical care medicine and preparing individuals to become future leaders in their field, we have trained more than 90 physicians in the art and science of intensive care for critically ill infants and children. Many graduates have become academic leaders within the field, both in the United States and abroad.

Now one of the largest in the United States, the program ranges from 12 to 15 fellows, depending on the fellows’ individual career paths. It emphasizes intense periods of clinical rotations during the early part of the fellowship, and later shifts to periods of protected time to carry out a research program developed with the help of faculty, other fellows, and other UT Southwestern investigators.

Our fellows have an excellent success rate on the American Board of Pediatric Critical Care Sub-board examination.
