fairly certain that's a no. typically have to be critical care (pulm or surgery), anesthesia, EM or occasionally flight med AFSCs for ccatt. But there have been circumstances (such as during the surge a few years back) when there were GI, cards, etc that were tasked with it. Everyone has to validate through the cstars pipeline either way.

per the AFTTP, The AFSCs allowed: 0044Y3, 044Y3A, 044M3 all shreds, 044E3A, 045A3, 045S3, 045S3A, 044F3, 048R3.

I am an IM attending and I am attending CCATT initial this year. I do plan on applying for CCM fellowship this year though, if that counts. I do have critical care-ish credentials at my facility (basic vent management, procedures) so maybe thats why this is allowed? Idk

I’m a civilian board certified anesthesiologist. Any idea if I’d have to do a critical care fellowship for this? Usually the anesthesia specific fellowships for critical care are just an additional year. I just got back from volunteering in nyc at the peak of the pandemic and they had me doing ICU over there, not sure if that’s any indicator? Really loved the experience and would like to get involved in this type of thing.

No you should not have to do a fellowship. Just go through the ccatt training pipeline.

There are cardiologists, gi docs, heme/onc i think, and other specialties that are ccatt and theyd all have to be validated via the cstars pipeline. But in general, it's EM, anesthesia, CCM, and occasionally surgery.
