Weinberg Intensive Care Unit (WICU)
The WICU is a surgical critical care unit that serves critically ill patients from the Weinberg floors and operating rooms. Residents rotating here are members of a multidisciplinary team that provides around-the-clock, intensivist-led care to a diverse, critically ill patient population. This team treats everything from post-op Whipple and pneumonectomy patients to critically ill cancer patients. The resident rotating in the WICU 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 rotation, residents learn to manage patients on multiple vasopressors, patients with severe cardiopulmonary disease, and patients with massive and rare infections.
Call in the WICU is only on weekends, weekday call is covered by night float through the surgery department.
