Critical Care/ICU Course

In order to identify and stabilize critically ill patients, describe the unique processes of care in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), and engage in interprofessional learning and care in an advanced clinical setting, all students complete a longitudinal acute and critical care learning experience in Alpine-Summit. This experience includes at least two weeks rotating in one of the ICUs at a SOM core site and participating in didactics/simulations addressing essential topics and skills. To meet this requirement, students can complete a 4- week Acting Internship that is exclusively in one of the core ICUs (this counts toward both the required Acting Internship requirement and the Critical Care requirement), or complete one of the 2-week Critical Care courses in the core ICU.
