The Critical Care Residency program at the University of Virginia is designed to train future academic intensivists with a serious, lifelong commitment to research. The goal is to have excellent exposure to trauma, transplant, and general surgery acute illness and learn cutting edge interventions, even before they become widely accepted practice. We have a multi-disciplinary faculty, including the fields of general surgery, transplant surgery, trauma, anesthesia, and emergency medicine. Additionally, the resident is expected to learn critical thought processes and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct complex problems in order to solve them. Most importantly, the resident is expected to develop and hone an acute desire to solve problems using the unique and creative research methodologies that are required in the ICU. Exposure to clinical and laboratory research (if desired) is available and encouraged. The strengths of the research effort include infectious diseases of the critically ill and resuscitation of traumatized and septic patients.
