Diverse acute patient population
Train in acute medicine and response team leadership as part of the Medical Emergency Training Through Simulation (METTS) curriculum portion of your boot camp. Other than cardiology and respirology, the program includes no sub-specialty wards, which means you’ll be exposed to a diverse acute patient population on CTUs. Where required, sub-specialty services will provide consultant advice.
Exceptional elective experiences
Elective experiences are available in all internal medicine and related subspecialty fields. At the discretion of the program director, you may choose a four to eight-week research elective in lieu of a subspecialty rotation. Two fully-funded annual resident retreats offer you the opportunity to connect with other residents and explore non-medical areas of training.
Early and ample participation in supervised procedures
Each CTU is equipped with a handheld ultrasound to assist with diagnoses and bedside procedures. This gives you opportunities to participate in supervised procedures including thoracentesis, paracentesis, central line insertion and lumbar puncture.
Individualized educational training
Our program size fosters connection and collegiality between residents and faculty and enables attentive response to the needs of our residents. Enhance your collaborative learning opportunities with excellent learner-to-physician ratios.
State-of-the-art simulation facilities
Train and prepare for exams in our state-of-the-art simulation facilities. To help you prepare for your core critical care rotations, you’ll participate in a two-day simulation ACES (Acute Critical Events Simulation) course during each of PGY1 and PGY2.
