In association with Duke University, Intermountain healthcare has developed a new ACGME accredited training opportunity at LDS Hospital and Intermountain Medical Center in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine. This is a 1 year fellowship recruiting 2 candidates per year who will spend 10 months at Intermountain facilities and 2 months at the Duke University Hospital in Durham, NC. All fellows are considered Duke University fellows, and have their living expenses and travel covered for the 2 month rotation.
The fellowship is open to applicants from ABMS specialties such as: Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Aerospace Medicine, Surgery, etc. Following the fellowship, the provider will be eligible for board certification in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine and receive a Duke diploma.
Fellows will gain experience in treating various critical and noncritical patients with hyperbaric medicine. Intermountain healthcare is the only fellowship site in the US offering a combination of monoplace, multiplace with hypobaric capabilities, and the ability to relocate monoplace chambers to specialty rooms in the intensive care unit for the treatment of intubated critical patients. The rotation at Duke University provides dive medicine exposure through taking dive accident call, dive and altitude research, and critical care multiplace chamber experience. Fellows will also have dedicated research time, and participate in twice weekly didactic lectures with the Duke Faculty and other fellows. The Faculty include well-published, world-renowned expert providers in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine from both Duke University and Intermountain Healthcare.
The application process is done through Duke University on their website: http://dukedivemedicine.org
