Neurocritical Care Rotation
Harborview Medical Centers offers a Neurocritical Care experience on a dedicated service run by the Department of Anesthesiology. Faculty from Anesthesiology, Emergency Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care, Neurology and Neurosurgery direct patient care on the service. Management of critical neurologic issues is stressed, including subarachnoid hemorrhage, stroke, trauma, and post-operative complications. The ICU team rounds jointly with Neurology on a daily basis, and meets twice weekly with the Neuroradiologists. There are multiple ongoing clinical research trials within this setting, and short or long term projects are encouraged. This is the only rotation which requires that the resident take Q4 overnight call, so arrangements should be made in advance in order to have coverage on the general neurology schedule.
