Critical Care Medicine

Educational Goals & Overview

The goal of rotations in the intensive care unit is to train residents in the treatment and management of critical and complex patients. The rotations include an emphasis on procedural skills and competence in difficult conversations.

Intensive Care Unit

The ICU at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center consists of 3 teams, each comprised of an attending physician, one resident (PGY-2/3), and one intern (PGY-1). Residents take overnight call every 3 days, while interns switch between a period of day shifts as the primary intern and a short period of night shifts.

Medical Intensive Care Unit at Ronald Reagan-UCLA

The Medical ICU at Ronald Reagan-UCLA Medical Center is a rigorous training experience with exposure to complex patients with very high acuity at a quaternary center. The unit consists of 4 primary teams, each comprised of an attending physician, one resident (PGY-2/3), and one intern (PGY-1). Interns rotate on service for 2 weeks.
