M10 Anesth 915Surgical Critical Care Advanced Clinical Rotation (ACR)140.0 Units
Description:The 4400 Surgical ICU provides an exciting and challenging opportunity to care for some of the sickest patients in the hospital. From acute trauma to complex organ transplants, the SICU offers incredible teaching and education about a variety of medical topics and conditions. The ACR SICU rotation integrates medical students into one of the two SICU teams, and each medical student, in conjunction with a resident, will care for 3-5 patients on the service. This entails, at minimum, examining the patient, gathering pertinent information (lab results, significant events, etc.), and presenting the patient on rounds. Working with the resident, medical students will develop a problem list, as well as an organized plan for their patients. They will then need to follow up on the execution of all determined labs/interventions/consults, closely communicating with the residents, fellow, and attending throughout the shift, as well as presence for sign-outs each morning/evening at shift change.

In addition,medical students will be expected to attend and participate in multiple educational conferences throughout the week/rotation, as well as sessions for skills such as line placement and ultrasound.

This rotation takes place at the Barnes-Jewish Hospital 4400 ICU Surgical and Burn/Trauma Intensive Care Unit. This ICU takes care of patients from a variety of backgrounds, including general surgery, trauma/acute care surgery, transplant surgery, vascular surgery, urology, as well as medical ICU overflow patients. The Surgical ICU is divided into 2 teams, Red and Blue, with each covering up to 18 patients. Medical students will be assigned to either the blue or red critical care teams while on the SICU rotation.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
