Adult Critical Care

Resident Education

Residents will rotate for four week in either the general adult Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) or the Weinberg Surgical Intensive Care Unit (WICU). During the rotation, the resident will:

  • Join an intensivist-led multidisciplinary team providing around the clock care to critically ill surgical patients;
  • Be supervised by an attending intensivist from the Departments of Anesthesiology & Critical Care Medicine or Surgery;
  • Learn the basic principles of critical care and organ system support including evidence-based best practices to improve outcome;
  • Attend educational conferences and lectures including critical care performance improvement sessions and ICU morbidity/mortality conference; and
  • Participate in the SCCM RICU web based educational development program and develop relevant technical skills.

As the resident proceed through successive ICU rotations, they are assigned more complex patients, perform objectives at a higher level of performance, and allowed greater independence. Residents in their second or subsequent rotations may be assigned medical students to supervise. Residents also have the opportunities to rotate in subspecialty ICUs, such as the NCCU, CSICU and PICU.
