Advanced Practitioner Rotation 


Advanced Practitioner Trauma Surgery/Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery Rotation:

     The Advanced Practitioner (AP) Trauma Surgery/Critical Care/Acute Care Surgery rotation is multidimensional. The goal of this rotation is to provide the AP student with a basic knowledge of Trauma Critical Care as well as introduce the student to the role of AP's in a trauma service. During the rotation, the student will be given basic course materials to supplement his/her learning. Basic Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), Critical Care, and ancillary lectures will be given throughout the rotation. The AP students will include days, nights, and weekends.
     The majority of the student's time will be spent participating in the critical care management of trauma patients. The students will also participate in any definitive treatment and management of trauma patients while in the Trauma Bay, in the Trauma Neuro Intensive Care Unit, Med/Surg floor, etc. They will be expected to participate in morning report, rounds, lectures, journal clubs, etc.
     The students will also be incorporated as part of the trauma team at trauma resuscitations. They will be expected to learn and incorporate appropriate basic ATLS principles. Students will also be given the opportunity to assist/perform a variety of procedures, under direct supervision. Students will also be given the opportunity to go to the operating room (OR) when there is an OR case. At the end of the rotation, the AP student will be asked to present a care report to the trauma team on a topic that is interesting to them that they encountered while on rotation.
