Suggested Curriculum for Tier 3 Physicians
These are physicians who would be expected to assist with the day-to-day care of ICU patients but would not be responsible for running a team or caring for patients independently. In academic centers, these would likely be acute care specialty residents with at least one month of experience in ICU while in community centers they may be staff physicians with a range of previous ICU experience.
We recognize that this group of physicians will have a wide variety of expertise and comfort levels caring for critically ill patients. Some Tier 3 physicians may already have a strong knowledge base in many of the topics below.
