The principal training facility for the Fellowship is the University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC). Located in downtown Baltimore, UMMC is a major tertiary and primary care facility with approximately 900 beds and annually cares for more than 30,000 inpatients and 500,000 outpatients. It serves as a major regional referral center for the most serious and complicated health problems in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region. All UMMC physicians are faculty of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Read more about UMMC here.
The state-of-the-art Weinberg building houses our 29-bed MICU, which serves a major investigative site for many multi-institutional clinical trials. The Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU) is a busy tertiary care ICU for critically ill medical patients.
The Surgical ICU is a 19 bed unit that manages complex non-traumatic general and sub-specialty surgery cases. The number of beds will soon increase with the opening of the new critical care tower.
The University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center is the prototypical trauma hospital in the United States. It currently houses 36 ICU beds split among 3 units, including a multi-trauma, a neuro-trauma, and a select trauma unit. With the completion of our new critical care tower nearing, these units are expected to increase to a total of 48 beds.
The 19-bed Cardiac Surgery ICU is a high-acuity unit that, in addition to managing complex cardiac and thoracic surgery cases, routinely employs advanced life-sustaining therapies such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation and ventricular assist devices to help ensure good patient outcomes even in the most complex cases.
The Neurological ICU is a 22 bed unit that specializes in the management of non-traumatic complex neurologic and neurosurgical cases. Beginning in 2013 this unit will also become the home unit for UMMC’s new neurocritical care fellowship.
The Maryland General Hospital ICU, an 18 bed community unit within the University of Maryland Medical System, treats a predominantly medical ICU population. This unit provides fellows with an excellent supervised “community ICU” experience.
