    I'm currently a PGY1 in a pediatrics residency and have been thinking seriously about pedi critical care. I also did a month of anesthesia in medical school and really enjoyed it. I see the anesthesia trained docs in the PICU with mad skills and wonder if a combined fellowship would make sense. What do you guys think? and which ones have you heard about that are high quality? Thanks

    I've heard that it's a pretty good way to go. CHOP (thru Penn) and Hopkins have pretty stellar programs. From what other people have said and what I've heard, I think those two are generally considered to be the the best.

    A friend of mine is in the Hopkins program and you do graduate with incredible skills. However, just a word of caution, the first year of that program is apparently 100+ hour weeks and then it gets easy. If I were interested in that field I would definitely consider as you will have excellent training.
