Since the early 1970s, Pueblo has become an academic medical center.

Supported by its two hospitals, Pueblo is the only Colorado city, outside of the Denver metro area, that has two major medical residency programs.

St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center has a Family Medicine residency program that trains 20 physicians each year and Parkview Medical Center has an Internal Medicine residency program that trains 30 physicians each year.

Parkview Medical Center also has a Critical Care Medicine fellowship program that trains six physicians each year.

The early 1970s was an exciting time in medicine and especially critical care medicine in southern Colorado.

Bartecchi's goal in this review is to cover the early development of critical care medicine during the early 1970s, and for a number of years after, while he was still active in the care of critically ill patients.
