Overview

We have a 12-bed PICU and an 16-bed variable-acuity PCCU. We have an intermediate care unit within PICU, which serves as a “step down” unit, as well as for the care of technology dependent children. Our fellows graduate with a deep understanding and capability to manage the care of patients with not only primary pediatric diseases, but also polytrauma, congenital cardiac defects, renal and hepatic transplantation, and patients with the need for ECMO and other extracorporeal modalities. Fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care is available through UT Health San Antonio, Department of Pediatrics Division of Pediatric Critical Care.
