Hello,

Could some of the fellows or attendings out there that are practicing or going to practice surgical critical care (with or without trauma) give an example of their weekly work schedule? I'm interested to know how different groups work out the schedule for these fields, and how much flexibility there is. Thank you!

The problem is:

1) there are no trauma or SICU attendings on this board (at least no one who has chosen to identify themselves as such)

2) there is a multitude of practice patterns; every group will do it differently.

There is really no way to answer your question because YOUR job description will depend on you, the group, the hospital, the census, the acuity of patients, and so on. If you're looking for a lifestyle specialty, SCC can come pretty close as long as you aren't taking gen surg or trauma call.
