BIDMC Finard ICU
Our fellows rotate through the Finard ICU in the first year of training. As an institution, BIDMC is a national leader in both critical care quality and critical care clinical research, and fellows benefit from related local expertise in ARDS management and post-cardiac arrest care in particular.
The Finard ICU is a 12-bed unit that cares for a diverse patient population, including both medical patients and surgical sub-specialty patients from obstetrics-gynecology, orthopedics and urology. In addition to participating actively in patient care, fellows are responsible for procedural supervision and organizing the daily ICU lecture for residents. In addition to daily rounds, fellow-directed teaching opportunities include weekly ultrasound rounds, biweekly radiology rounds, bimonthly critical care M&M conferences, and unique one-on one teaching sessions with both respiratory therapists, focusing on advanced ventilator modes and esophageal pressure monitoring, and multidisciplinary critical care educators, with a focus on noninvasive cardiac output monitoring devices.
