On behalf of all of the intensivists here, I want to thank you for considering our critical care program at AdventHealth Orlando. At over 1400 beds under one roof we are one of the largest facilities in the country, and we are the hub of a multi-hospital system here in central Florida. With 7 different general and specialty adult ICUs containing close to 200 adult ICU beds we have the capacity and resources, as well as the widest range of pathology, to provide a rich educational opportunity for our trainees.

You will be able to learn from our multidisciplinary intensivist group, all of whom bring different perspectives to the delivery of critical care medicine. You will learn from, and eventually lead, our interprofessional rounds. There will be opportunities to teach residents, medical students, and scholars of all levels.

With both elective and selective rotations you can spend additional time developing special interests, working on research, or exploring areas around critical care. Our faculty will work with you in order to prepare you for the career you envision, whether it be in academics or community medicine, or some blend of the two.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet you and show you all of the amazing opportunities here at AdventHealth.

Medical ICU: the MICU has 20 beds and sees a mix of medical and cardiac patients. Fellows rotate under the supervision of a critical care attending. Emergency medicine residents rotate here throughout the year as well.

Multispecialty ICU: this is a 20 bed unit and co-houses the Liver ICU. In addition to the hepatology cases, this until sees general medical patients with a focus on oncologic and bone marrow transplant cases. This unit is the primary ICU rotation site for the internal medicine residency.

Cardiac ICU: the CICU has 20 beds and sees cardiomedical patients, heart failure and pre-cardiac surgery patients. Fellows will be exposed to, and learn to manage cardiac support devices such as impellas, balloon pumps, temporary pacers, and pulmonary artery catheters.

Cardiovascular surgery ICU: this is a 28 bed ICU for general post-op cardiac and basic thoracic surgical patients. The fellow rounds with one attending and one APP.

Advanced Cardiothoracic Surgical Unit: this is a 32 bed ICU with more complex cardiothoracic surgical patients, post-transplant for heart and lung, LVAD implants, and more. This unit has the capacity to run over 20 ECMO circuits simultaneously. There are two attendings, one fellow, and a small army of APPs.

Neurology/neurosurgical ICU: the NSICU is a 40 bed unit with two attendings, two fellows, and one APP. Fellows work with the neurointensivists to manage critically ill patients with strokes, seizures, post-neurosurgical cases, and other disorders of the CNS

Surgical ICU: the SICU has 20 beds and sees post-operative patients, including abdominal organ transplant patients (liver, kidney, pancreas). Fellows rotate under the supervision of a surgical critical care attending.

Trauma ICU: AdventHealth Orlando is not a trauma center of any designation. We have partnered with the local level 1 trauma center to offer a rotation during the second year in the trauma ICU.
