Working in the intensive care unit at Baylor Scott & White – Fort Worth provides a unique opportunity to experience a wide variety of pathologies. Sub-interns will learn the management of routine ICU diagnoses such as circulatory failure, sepsis, and respiratory failure and more complex medical and surgical diagnoses such as the management of Advanced Heart Failure requiring Impella, LVAD, or ECMO and post-transplant care. Students will be taught how to interpret labs and imaging studies and learn the basics of mechanical ventilation management.
The Sub-Interns will learn through direct patient care by evaluating patients and formulating diagnostic and therapeutic care plans.
Students will be responsible for presenting their patients during multidisciplinary rounds. Students will be supervised by the resident/attending at all times.
The Critical Care Sub-Internship experience at Baylor Scott & White All Saints allows students the ability to practice core clinical skills including identifying critically ill patients, knowing when to ask for assistance, managing time wisely, and communicating effectively within the health care team.
