Special Features

Clinical training
Surgical critical care residents receive 12 consecutive months of training at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. The critical care resident will be trained as a specialist in all aspects of surgical critical care including understanding and applying a wholistic organ-system approach to surgical critical care for diagnosis and treatment, teaching, research, medical ethics, and administration. This will allow the resident to take a leadership role in teaching and research in surgical critical care.

Surgical Intensive Care Unit
The majority of the surgical critical care resident's year is spent in Surgical Intensive Care Unit. Their activities are concentrated in this unit and related areas as well as in the formal elements of the educational program specific to the discipline. The care of all patients in the unit is supervised or overseen by the surgical critical care resident who is in turn supervised by the in-house full-time faculty member.

Patient population
As the only Level I trauma center of the North Side of Chicago, trauma patients comprise the majority of the patient-base for the surgical critical care patients. Other patients are referred to the surgical critical care consulting service.

Training structure
The structure of the training program includes extensive daily critical care attending teaching rounds. The didactic components of the surgical critical care program are listed in Conferences.
