ACGME Accredited ACCM Fellowship Programs

SOCCA has provided listings of the certified Critical Care Anesthesia fellowships over the years. There are currently 54 programs in the United States. You may view the contact information for all programs here.

In general, the most current contact information can be obtained from the ACGME. Each program has a different number of positions, interview process, etc. That said, all of the programs are a 12 month fellowship; it is presumed that prospective fellows will obtain the appropriate state licenses prior to commencing work.

Common Application Form
All ACCM fellowship programs are now utilizing a Common Application Form (CAF) for the application process.  Please click here  to download the CAF.  A separate application must be sent to each program to which you are applying.  Please check with the individual programs to see if there is any supplemental information they require.

Additional information regarding graduate medical training can be found on the ACGME site.

ACCM Fellowship Match
The majority of the ACCM Fellowship Programs participate in a match administered through SF Match. Participating programs, instructions for enrolling in the match, and the match timeline can be found on the SF Match website.

Exceptions to the Match
There are five agreed upon instances where a program and an applicant may agree to a position without waiting for the match to happen. It is important to remember that both program and applicant must still enroll in the match!

These are the instances:
Exception #1: Applicants who are in active military service at the time of application.
Exception #2: Applicants who are making a commitment to come to the institution of the CCM fellowship for more than one year.
Exception #3: Applicants who are enrolled in an anesthesiology residency outside of the USA at the time of the application.
