Students are assigned individual patients and expected to review the medical history and perform the physical examination. The students will discuss the daily management, write orders (countersigned by house staff), discuss the laboratory and radiological studies deemed appropriate and participate in some of the invasive procedures performed on their patients. The student will participate in didactic seminars and lectures as well as case conferences related to various topics in Critical Care Medicine, such as cardiovascular failure, respiratory failure and the overall management of critically ill pediatric patients.
