Program Outcomes

This one-year, ACGME-accredited Adult Critical Care Medicine Fellowship Program at the University of Florida prepares fellows to direct intensive care units and to manage all of the issues that arise in the care of adult critically ill surgical patients.

During the year, fellows:

  • Hone their understanding of the spectrum of critical surgical illness
  • Learn to recognize the critically ill patient who needs intensive postoperative care from the patient who does not require such care
  • Analyze the physiologic, neurologic, respiratory and hemodynamic instability of critically ill patients
  • Develop and implement patient care plans
  • Monitor neurologic status and provide improved care for critically ill patients
  • Enhance communication skills through teaching residents, leading teams, and interacting with attending physicians, patients’ families, consultants, and support services

Procedures:

  • Central lines & Arterial lines
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Pencutaneous Tracheostomy
  • Ultrasonography
  • Difficult Airway Management
