The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine is comprised of Board Certified Pediatric Critical Care physicians with a broad set of expertise. They are primarily responsible for coverage of our 24 bed multidisciplinary Pediatric Intensive Care Unit located at Holtz Children’s Hospital/Jackson Memorial Medical Center. The Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine also performs deep procedural sedation, plus offers coverage for our Pediatric Cardiac ICU and support for the Pediatric Palliative Care team. They provide mentorship for the ACGME accredited pediatric critical care fellowship program (eight positions) at Holtz Children’s Hospital. The Division members are actively involved in the Pediatric Residency Training Program and provide mentorship for the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Medical School students.

In addition, all faculties play an integral role in participating in academic research which is focused upon bridging the gap between basic science bench work and the clinical bedside. The faculty frequently participates in multi-institutional investigations to maintain a high profile in the field of pediatric critical care medicine and aim for excellence in clinical family centered patient care. The PCCM fellows rotate through the Pediatric Critical Care service, the Pediatric Cardiac ICU service and the Procedural sedation service. Fellows can carve out time during the fellowship for electives in Pediatric Palliative Care, Poison Center, Trauma ICU, or NICU, depending on their long term plans. Our fellows offer 24-hour, in-house coverage and are expected to respond and assist in pediatric trauma cases presenting to the Ryder Trauma Center; and respond to any pediatric cardiac arrests. The fellows are a key resource to the pediatric residents and also offer consultations for assessment, stabilization and possible transfer of pediatric patients.
