2024-2025 Critical Care Selectives

The Critical Care Selective rotation provides IUSM students with exposure to the management of critically ill patients. These rotations have been highly rated by prior students, and these experiences are designed to prepare our IUSM graduates for the complex clinical challenges they will face in their first months of residency training. The rotation consists of asynchronous didactics that cover core critical care topics and a 4-week clinical experience on an Intensive Care Unit. In addition to the other core rotation requirements in Phase 3, students must complete a minimum of one Critical Care Selective to fulfill IUSM graduation requirements. The trend of required critical care exposure for senior students is increasingly prevalent in medical schools across the country, and this preparation is viewed as providing a competitive advantage to our students applying to residency. The Critical Care Selective catalog below outlines the variety of Critical Care training opportunities available across all IUSM campuses.
