My job involves not only leading a large team of fellows, residents, medical students, PA/NP's, nurses, and other professionals on the ICU rounds, but also actively participating in supervising and teaching the ICU residents, who come to us from three different departments: anesthesiology, surgery, and emeregency medicine.
