Course Description: This elective is designed to give senior medical students experience in the management of critically ill surgical patients. The student's primary experience will be gained in the Surgical Trauma Intensive Care (STICU) setting. The student will work closely with the resident on call for that day. Patients should be seen and clinical notes recorded prior to the 0800 STICU rounds. The students are expected to present their patients on the STICU attendings rounds. They will then assist the on-call resident in patients care. While night and weekend call are not enforced, the students are encouraged to actively participate in patient management at all times and should be present in the STICU in the evenings if a learning opportunity arises. Students will attend didactic lectures given by the attendings, respiratory therapy, pharmacy and nutrition support staff.
