How to Apply

The University of Iowa Anesthesia Critical Care Fellowship utilizes the Central Application Service, administered by SF Match. Candidates must apply to our fellowship by going to SF Match and using this service to submit an application.  Their website gives instructions on registering for the match process, as well as how to submit the application and supplemental documents.

Additional information about this process can be found on the Society of Critical Care Anesthesiology website, or by contacting Fatima Kenjar (, Critical Care Fellowship Coordinator.

Applications are reviewed and suitable candidates will be invited for an interview.


The application and interview season runs from November to May. Applicants should apply in their second to last year of residency (for Anesthesia residents this would be the CA-2 year) as the match occurs approximately 14 months prior to the start of the fellowship year. For instance, fellows interviewing in the 2018-2019 academic year will match on June 2, 2017 and will begin their fellowship in July 2018.

While there is no hard deadline for the submission of applications, applicants should be mindful that rank lists are due late May and thus, applications must be submitted early enough to allow for scheduling and completion of interviews prior to this date.
