Our neonatal intensive care unit consists of 55 beds, which includes intensive care, intermediate care, and observation areas. While rotating through the NICU residents become experienced with resuscitation of both premature and term infants. Under the guidance of our neonatal attendings and fellows, they manage the care for premature infants with their associated complications as well as full-term infants with a spectrum of genetic syndromes.
Senior residents spend 2 months rotating through the PICU at UI Health, and interns do a one-month PICU rotation at the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. At UI Health, residents are exposed to critically-ill children with a spectrum of pediatric medical and surgical illnesses. At Stroger, interns care for critically-ill children, many of whom have suffered burns and trauma-related injuries. Residents work under the supervision of pediatric critical care faculty at both sites, caring for patients throughout their PICU course
