Alfred Health is a leader in health care delivery, improvement, research and education. We are the main provider of health services to people living in the inner southeast suburbs of Melbourne, from ambulatory, to inpatient and home and community based services.
The Alfred Department of Intensive Care is a state of the art 45 bed unit that treats approximately 3000 patients per year.
The Alfred ICU provides Victorian state services for heart & lung transplantation (including paediatric lung transplantation), artificial heart technology, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), burns and hyperbaric medicine. The Alfred is one of two centres providing state services for adult trauma, HIV and bone marrow transplantation (autologous and allogeneic). In addition, most other surgical and medical subspecialties are represented in the case-mix in keeping with the quaternary referral center status of The Alfred Hospital. There is an ICU-based echocardiography service with regular education sessions and opportunities for hands-on training.

There are four Alfred ICU Fellow positions available to trainees.
