Are there any hospitals with COVID-only intensive care units that are exclusively (or at least primarily) staffed by FM residents? If so, how are those units structured, and what role/level of involvement do the residents have? Also, any incentives provided for the residents working in those units?

Do you mean a closed ICU style where any patient that goes to the ICU gets managed by the intensivist only +/- FM resident on ICU month?
Do you mean an open ICU where certain patients (usually continuity) are managed by FM residents + FM attending w/ consultation of intensivist?
*certain merits to both.

Either scenario infers no incentives.. its part of GME (unfortunately).

I trained in a "hybrid", had ICU rotation exclusively with intensivist in addition to our inpatient teams following continuity patients into ICU w/ consultation model.
