The fellowship will be located at one site in Orlando. We are a nearly 1300 bed hospital with 160 adult ICU beds.
• 56 medical ICU beds
• 20 cardiac ICU beds
• 28 cardiovascular surgery ICU beds
• 8 dedicated ECMO beds
• 20 multidisciplinary surgical ICU beds
• 28 neuro/neurosurgical ICU beds
We have a wide range of medical and surgical services, and as a fellow you will be exposed to and learn how to manage:
• Cardiac and pulmonary support devices such as ventilators, impellas, balloon pumps, LVADs, VA and VV ECMO, etc...
• Continuous renal replacement circuits
• Heart, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplant patients
• Complex oncologic patients
• Shock, shock, and more shock
• The everyday patients of critical care as well as the rare and unusual cases.
We are a quaternary referral center for the region and the state hub of our hospital system.
Medical ICU: The MICU has 20 beds and sees a mix of medical and cardiac patients. Fellows rotate under the supervision of a critical care attending.
Cardiac ICU: The CICU has 20 beds and sees primarily cardiac medical patients, and pre-cardiac surgery patients. Fellows rotate under the supervision of a critical care attending. Fellows will be exposed to, and learn to manage, cardiac support devices such as impellas, balloon pumps, temporary pacers, and pulmonary artery catheters.
Multispecialty ICU: The MSICU has 32 beds; 16 of which are covered by the internal medicine resident service. This unit sees a mix of medical and surgical patients, along with oncologic and obstetric issues. When the fellow is on the teaching side they will supervise, guide, and teach the residents. That fellow will also have primary responsibility for the ICU admission phone. On the non-teaching side, the fellow will cover the 16 beds directly with the critical care attending.
Surgical ICU: The SICU has 20 beds and sees post-operative patients, including abdominal organ transplant patients (liver, kidney, pancreas). Fellows rotate under the supervision of a surgical critical care attending.
Neurology/neurosurgical ICU: The NSICU has 28 beds. Fellows work with the neuro intensivists to manage critically ill patients with strokes, seizures, post-neurosurgical cases, and other disorders of the CNS.
Cardiovascular Surgery ICU and ECMO Unit: The CVICU has 28 beds and the ECMO unit has 8 dedicated beds. Fellows will work with the anesthesia critical care attendings to care for the post-thoracic transplant patients, valve-replacements, coronary artery bypass patients, LVAD implants, as well as VV and VA ECMO support, and a variety of other cardiac surgery patients.
Electives: Elective rotations will be available in a variety of medical subspecialty fields, as well as areas of medicine which the fellow can focus on to gain more understanding in a field of special interest. Electives are either 2 or 4 weeks in length.
