Ascension St. John Hospital MICU/CICU

 Several Interns will be assigned to the intensive care units each month along with a supervising senior resident. Sign-in rounds are at 7 a.m. and sign-out rounds are at 4:30 p.m. along the team with the attending/fellow. Teaching rounds are held twice daily. Depending on the unit, a time will also be set aside for x-ray rounds. On Saturdays rounds are at 8 a.m. and interns may leave when all work is complete, generally around 12 p.m.

This month allows for abundant procedures, such as ultrasound guided central venous catheter insertions, arterial catheter insertions, lumbar punctures, and much more. You will also develop expertise in ventilators. The acuity of patients from the Detroit Metro area is both diverse and educational, with a large volume of patients and excellent supervision.

There is no clinic while on MICU.
