Description of Rotation

This course will acquaint the student with the pediatric care of intensive care patients, their diagnoses and management. Students will round with team daily and will be expected to primarily follow 2-3 patients daily. The call schedule will be arranged with the individual student. Learning and performing procedures will depend on availability of patients, motivation of the student, and rapport with the attending staff.
