Critical Care

This rotation is spent in the Morton Plant ICU, working with the Pulmonology/Critical Care physicians who are also our Medicine attendings. It is an excellent experience with a lot of one-on-one teaching. We spend our mornings pre-rounding on a few ICU patients, then rounding as an inter-disciplinary team with a pharmacist, nutritionist, clergyman, social worker, nurse, and attending on all of the ICU patients. Our afternoons are spent following up on the morning’s treatment plan, admitting and discharging patients, and performing procedures such as central line placements. Here we become comfortable (or as comfortable as possible!) managing critically ill patients.
