Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU)
Residents rotating on the Surgical Critical Care service are members of a multidisciplinary team providing around-the-clock, intensivist-led care to critically ill patients in the SICU. The resident cares for all patients under the direct supervision of an attending or fellow intensivist in residence in collaboration with the surgical team and ICU staff. During this month-long rotation, residents learn to manage patients on multiple vasopressors, patients with severe cardiopulmonary disease, and patients with massive and rare infections. This is a valuable opportunity to gain comprehensive experience in the perioperative, non-OR based management of surgical patients.
Call in the SICU is every third night.
Hopkins also offers a one year, ACGME accredited surgical critical care fellowship. For more information, click here
