Intensive Care Unit – Surrey Memorial Hospital

Goals and learning objectives:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to effectively manage a full patient census of critically-ill patients
  2. Build my library of critical care literature and be able to articulate the key points from landmark articles in a few concise sentences
    1. This rotation would like to focus on literature regarding ARDS and septic shock (fluids, antibiotics, vasopressors, steroids)
  3. Work on providing recommendations with rationale drawn from the literature (if available) and briefly educating the ICU team about the relevant literature/rationale while I make the recommendation (not just relying on clinical experience)
  4. Practice physical assessment skills on critically ill patients and utilize physical assessment findings to influence a pharmacotherapeutic recommendation at least twice
