Critical Care Rotation

The Department of Anesthesiology is responsible for the co-management of cardiothoracic and neuro ICU patients. The Section of Critical Care has a total of 12 faculty members with backgrounds in Anesthesiology, Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Neurology, plus 6 advanced practitioners (Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants).

These ICUs use a co-management approach, where the Critical Care team works very closely with the primary care service to provide comprehensive care to the patients. The rotations in our Intensive Care Units are dedicated to providing residents with hands-on clinical experience in a wide variety of settings, supplemented by daily didactic sessions by academic faculty and fellows committed to teaching. Resident education is a priority throughout the rotation. The overall goal of critical care rotation is enable each resident to acquire the knowledge, skills and experience to successfully provide care for the critically ill patients.

The critical care group has an active basic and clinical research programs. For interested residents, the resources of the group are available to assist in research projects.
