Elective Rotations

To accommodate fellows' individual interests, we offer a variety of subspecialty electives that embrace the enormity of resources available within our health care system. We encourage fellows to think "outside-the-box" and work with them to design novel elective plans that will allow for a more unique and personalized training. Some examples of popular electives include:

·         Emergency/Trauma ultrasonography

·         Transesophageal echocardiography

·         Medical critical care

·         Critical care radiology and neuroradiology

·         Infectious disease for the ICU

·         Nephrology and renal replacement therapy in the ICU

·         Palliative care and ICU hospice

·         Basic, Clinical, Translational Research

·         International outreach medicine

·         Globalized ICU development

·         Telemedicine
