Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine Fellowships
In 2013, the ABMS Board of Directors approved joint sponsorship between the ABA and the American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) of certification in Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine (ACCM). Emergency physicians can now apply for ACGME-accredited ACCM fellowship training after their Emergency Medicine residency training. When they have completed a 24-month ABA-approved CCM fellowship, they can seek Board certification.
Programs that wish to offer a two-year fellowship must receive prospective approval from the ABA before any trainees accepted into the two-year anesthesiology critical care medicine fellowship can qualify for certification under the training pathway. The grandfathering provision will be available for four years beginning July 1, 2013. A physician seeking certification under the grandfathering pathway must complete both training and a practice component to be considered for certification.
