Anyone know of any surgery specialists (i.e. not general surgeons or trauma surgeons or surgical emergency surgeons) who are also active SICU attendings part time? I.E vascular surgeon or onc surgeon or endocrine or something like that? How is their practice set up? Their life style?

I have a friend who does a combination of SICU (with fellowship) and general surgery. He covers his partners' patients when they're in the ICU and has an elective general surgery practice. He does no trauma. I know some Vascular guys who do their own ICU management, but that seems to be a declining trend. I can't imagine someone in endocrine doing ICU management -- you go into that because you want a nice lifestyle.

All our day shift SCC docs are straight SCC, that's all they do. Trauma is totally separate. The guys who cover the pm shift 7p-7a are GS (CC fellowship trained) or vascular guys who pick up the shifts for the cash. Whoever's on the shift manages all the SCC patients and then signs them out to whoever is coming on in the am. Usually there are 2 day guys for the week and the night guy varies. The ONC and trauma service manages a lot of their own ICU pts, but as soon as anyone starts to go the wrong way they consult SCC.

I know a transplant surgeon who does part-time SICU when not on service for transplant. She does a combination of day and night shifts several times each month.

I am doing a surgical critical fellowship currently and we have a staff who is a cardiothoracic surgeon who is also fellowship trained in SCC. He covers the unit about one week a month.

I know a vascular surgeon who also did a SCC fellowship and he splits his time between the two.

Where I went to med school the U rotates ICU staff weekly. The attendings that cover include an endocrine\general surgeon, Burns, SCC, trauma and anesthesia, actually.
