Critical Care International Observer Program
The Division of Critical Care Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital welcomes physicians from all nations to apply to observe in the Medical/Surgical Intensive Care Unit (MSICU) for a period of one to three months. In the past ten years, we have had physicians from over twenty-one countries observe in our Division and we hope to expand the breadth of observers even further in the upcoming years.
Each star on the map represents a country from which our international observers have come.
Children's is a 377-bed institution located in the center of the Harvard Medical School complex. The MSICU, with just over 2,000 admissions annually, provides all critical care services for our very active programs in medicine, general surgery, transplantation, neurosurgery, craniofacial reconstruction, orthopedics, otolaryngology and trauma. In addition, the unit serves as one of the largest extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) centers in the United States with approximately 60 children treated annually.
