ICU elective at LDS Hospital. Medical students are important members of the ICU team and are welcome on this rotation. They actively participate in the care of patients on this combined medical intensive care/coronary care unit.

Medical students are able to perform procedures under the supervision of residents, fellows, or attendings. In addition to outstanding bedside teaching by the attendings, residents, fellows, respiratory therapists and nurses, formal teaching sessions are held. This elective provides an excellent review of internal medicine, outstanding preparation for residency, and an opportunity to work closely with attendings.
