Acute Care Surgery

The education of our medical students is an important part of the Acute Care Surgery Program. Students make rounds as part of the team both on the floors and as part of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) team.

Medica students are encouraged to:

  • Follow individual patients
  • Scrub in the operating room
  • Present their patients at morning report and on SICU rounds.

Students take overnight call with the trauma team and participate actively in trauma bay resuscitations to gain an appreciation for the complex care of the acutely ill and injured.
