The number of anesthesiology residents pursuing critical care medicine (CCM) fellowship training has been decreasing in recent years.
A significant number of training positions remain unfilled each year.
Possible causes of this decline were evaluated by surveying residents regarding their attitudes toward practice and training in CCM.
All 38 anesthesiology programs having accredited CCM fellowships were surveyed.
Four of these and one program without CCM fellowships were used to develop the survey instrument.
Four programs without CCM fellowships and 34 programs with CCM fellowships make up the survey group.
Returned were 640 surveys from 37 (97%) programs accounting for over 30% of the possible residents.
Resident interest in pursuing CCM training decreased as year of residency increased (P<0.0001).
