    Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Translational Research in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine
    Section of Critical Care Medicine, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine at Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston, Texas.

    The NIH-funded training grant “Research Training in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine” provides support for postdoctoral fellows (M.D. and/or Ph.D.) to establish and/or solidify key areas of research that are currently under-investigated in this unique patient population relating to the pathogenesis of critical illness in the developing host, and the effect of critical illness on development. The fellowship is one (1) year in length. Fellows train with senior academician-mentors whose area of service or research link to pediatric critical care medicine. Research areas include inflammation, thrombosis and hemostasis, cardiovascular sciences, outcomes research, ethics and informatics. The goal of this program is to prepare both M.D. and Ph.D. fellows for careers as “translational scientists” for this unique patient population. This is a great opportunity for Ph.D. post-doctoral fellows to acquire new skills and knowledge with the goal of applying them to a non-traditional area (i.e. children and critical illness, with high potential for future funding). It is also ideal for the M.D. fellow who needs further support and training as they solidify their research expertise on the way toward their first K award.

    Applicants must be citizens or permanent resident aliens of the United States. Positions are available for individuals to begin July 1, 2012 until June 30, 2013. Limited positions may also be available after this.

    Interested individuals should submit a curriculum vitae, letter of interest, and letters of support from three (3) references to:

This training is available for a period of 12 months to individuals who are BC/BE in either Pediatric Cardiology or Pediatric Critical Care Medicine. All clinical activities will take place at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, a 280 bed quaternary care facility serving Arkansas and the surrounding states.

    The Arkansas Children's Hospital Heart Center includes a 17-bed CVICU with a 17 bed-stepdown CVICU staffed 24/7 by pediatric intensivists and cardiologists. The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit admits approximately 800 patients per year. The pediatric and congenital cardiovascular surgery team, led by Dr Michiaki Imamura performs approximately 700 congenital heart surgeries yearly, with approximately one half being cardiopulmonary bypass cases. The program has a very strong neonatal cardiac surgery, heart transplant, ventricular assist device and mechanical support focus. Arkansas Children's Hospital maintains a very busy ECMO program, with one of the Nation’s only mobile ECMO programs, and a formal training in ECMO support of cardiac patients is readily available.

    The fellows will also have the opportunity of working closely with dedicated pediatric cardiac anesthesiologists during their training. The hospital also houses the Donald W. Reynolds Pediatric Intensive care unit, a state-of-the-art 26-bed facility which receives approximately 1300 admissions yearly, with the entire spectrum of diseases seen in any large sized PICU. The program presents a very conducive environment for clinical training in various aspects of care of critically ill children with congenital heart disease.

    Phoenix Children's Hospital is pleased to announce its newly accredited Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship program and is seeking energetic and interested candidates to begin fellowship in July 2012. Phoenix Children's Hospital is Arizona’s only licensed children's hospital, providing world-class care in more than 40 pediatric specialties to children from throughout the Southwest. Phoenix Children's Hospital moved into a new, 11-story tower in May 2011 that brings our capacity to over 600 patient beds. Currently, 48 PICU beds and 24 CVICU beds reside on adjacent floors, with an additional 24 beds ready to be built out. We expect to have a total of 96 ICU beds by 2013. Our average yearly admission rate is over 4,000 patients. PCH houses the 4th largest cardiac program among CHCA hospitals, with 300-400 surgical cases per year, one of the largest orthopedic surgery programs and Arizona’s only pediatric bone marrow transplant program. With our association with the Barrow Neurologic Institute and under the leadership of Dr. David Adelson, The Center for Neurosciences (the 6th largest neuroscience program in the US) has active research into epilepsy, traumatic brain injury and outcomes research. We became the only certified pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center in the state in 2009 and this forms a growing part of our population as well. Heart, renal, BMT and likely development of a liver transplant program add to the complexity and referral patterns of patients we care for. An expanding ECLS program, under the direction of Dr. Heidi Dalton, Chief of Critical Care Medicine, also cares for about 30-40 patients per year and ventricular assist devices form a new avenue of support that PCH is involved with. Critical Care provides primary medical care to all patients housed in the PICU/CVICU.

    Phoenix Children's Hospital was selected as one of seven hospitals in the NIH funded Collaborative Pediatric Critical Care Research Network, which is a great honor and a source of multiple ongoing research efforts. Recent naming of Dr. Murray Pollock (a leader in Critical Care Medicine for decades) as the Chair of the Department of Child Health at the University of Arizona College of Medicine/Phoenix and the presence of Dr. Vinay Vaidya (also an intensivist) as the leader of the Informatics department at PCH also highlight the visibility of Critical Care within the region.

    The fellowship is designed to prepare you for a career in Pediatric Critical Care Medicine as both an excellent clinician and an academic thinker. The goals and objectives are achieved through direct patient care, supervision of other trainees, and a comprehensive curriculum that includes conferences, didactic lectures, courses, hands on learning activities and workshops.
