The critical care fellows rotate between Saint Michael's Medical Center in Newark, NJ and JFK Medical Center in Edison, NJ. There are two positions available each year. The program is structured to ensure training in the Medical and Intensive Care Units. Fellows work under the supervision of the medical director and critical care attending caring for patients of the assigned ICU who are critically ill. The fellow will also manage perioperative neurosurgical patients in conjunction with the critical care attending and neurosurgical team.


The Critical Care Fellowship Program of Seton Hall is a one-year program which is part of a larger Pulmonary/Critical Care Fellowship Program.

The fellows complete two years of pulmonary training in addition to their year of critical care. The outstanding feature of our program is the degree of interaction between the fellows and the supervisory physician. Each year there are only two fellows training in Critical Care, therefore, the relationship between attending and the critical care fellow becomes extremely close so that a personal relationship often exists. This close interaction leads to good bedside teaching, academic discussion, a secure environment, good patient care and the ability to monitor the stress levels of the fellow.

Another benefit of our program is the fact that the fellows get to rotate through two very distinct intensive care environments, St. Michael’s Medical Center, which provides academic inner-city intensive care settings, and JFK Medical Center’s unit which provides a private community-based setting with full-time intensivists on-site, and an ICU which has a neuro-intensive care specialty run by a neuro-surgery department as a unique feature.


In the past five years we have had 100% pass rate on the American Board of Internal Medicine Certifying Examination in Critical Care Medicine.
