Fundamental critical care support
First-year residents attend a two-day fundamental critical care support course to prepare for increased involvement in the ICU when on call.
Noon didactics are held every Wednesday and Thursday over lunch. We also have a three-hour didactic block on the second and fourth Tuesday of every month. This includes both in-depth look at topics of importance as well as hands-on skill workshops such as splinting.
