Duke University School of MedicineCourses of InstructionAnesthesiologyClinical Science ElectivesANESTH-401C. Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Sub-Internship. The cardiothoracicintensive care sub-internship will allow fourth year medical students to be exposed to andparticipate in the care of the post-operative and critically ill cardiac and thoracic surgery patient.This patient population has the highest rate of invasive monitoring, echocardiographic andhemodynamic assessment, and advanced circulatory support including utilization of inotropes,vasopressors, and mechanical circulatory support devices (LVAD, RVAD, IABP). A workingknowledge of these concepts will be critical to a future career in Anesthesiology, Critical CareMedicine, or Surgery. This sub-internship level course will allow students to participate in patientcare 6 days a week. This will be an in-depth experience in cardiac critical care medicine. Studentswill be evaluated on their knowledge, skills, and ability to facilitate patient care in thisenvironment. Students will be expected to take a high degree of ownership of their patients,communication between the critical care, surgery, and anesthesia teams will be emphasized. Thissub-internship course will not fulfill acute care curriculum requirement. Credit: 5. Enrollment: Max-2 Min-1.

The Culinary Medicine Program is amedical nutrition therapy course that targets the crucial role that nutrition plays in preventionand treatment of chronic diseases. The Program includes lectures and discussions on nutrition forspecific disease states and a hands-on cooking course so that the students can learn how toprepare meals tailored for the different disease states. This course will be taught by Duke facultyand staff whose careers are driven by clinical and research interests in topics related to nutrition.Their teaching will be supplemented by a curriculum from the Goldring Center for CulinaryMedicine at Tulane University, which has been used in over 50 sites across the country (medicalschools, nursing schools, etc.). This course will be held on Tuesday evenings from 5:30p-8:30p.Students will meet at the Duke Diet and Fitness Center. Enrollment Maximum: 16; Minimum: 15.Credit: 1. Grading basis is Credit/No Credit. Students participate actively inassigned patient care and clinical projects. Well-focused segments of ongoing clinical workprovide intensive exposure to clinical physiology and pharmacology. Students will be assigned anattending physician (mentor), desk and computer space in the Hyperbaric Center. Consultativeservices are provided for inpatients and outpatients from orthopedics, medicine, radiationoncology, intensive care units, and preoperative and postoperative care units. Specific indicationsfor hyperbaric oxygen therapy are used in clinical care and in developing translational projects.Students are guided in producing concrete clinical presentations and reports related to the field. Students should meet for rounds on the first day of classes promptly at7:30 a.m. The location is Hyperbaric Center Library, 0588 White Zone, CR II Building. Credit: 4.Enrollment Max 1. Claude Piantadosi, MD, and staffANESTH-440C. Clinical Anesthesiology. The student will participate in the pre-, intra-,and post-operative anesthetic management of patients while assigned to an individual residentor attending anesthesiologist. Usually, (s)he will spend two weeks in the general Operating rooms,one in the Cardio-thoracic Operating Rooms, and a fourth week in subspecialty areas includingthe Hyperbaric facility, The Acute Pain Management Service, and others. Learning opportunitieswill include pre-operative patient evaluation, anesthetic technique selection, airway management,pharmacology, physiology, and anatomy, as well as procedures such as vascular access, includingcentral venous and arterial line placement, and patient monitoring. These areas will be reinforcedby lectures, Grand Rounds, and other conferences. In the fall, priority in registration is given tostudents considering careers in Anesthesiology. Students MUST attend the first day of the section,and are strongly advised not to miss any of the first week. More than 4 absences are notpermitted. Schedules for the class will be emailed out prior to the start of the course. Prerequisite: NOTE: This course may require rotations at the VA Medical Center.

This course is designed to broaden the student'sknowledge and experience in managing critically ill surgical patients. Under supervision, studentsfunction as sub-interns in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU). Students are assigned theirown patients and actively participate in daily rounds as part of the SICU team. There is a dailylecture on aspects of critical care. Students take call one night in four and work on a one-on-onebasis with SICU house staff in the supervised management of critically ill patients. Time may bespent in the SICU at Duke University Medical Center (trauma, vascular surgery, liver-kidneypancreas transplantation, general surgery) and/or the SICU at the Durham VA Medical Center(cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, general surgery). There is emphasis on teaching ofprocedures and techniques necessary for the management of all critically ill patients includinghemodynamic assessment and monitoring, cardiovascular resuscitation and use of vasoactivedrugs, ventilator management including ARDS, prevention and management of nosocomialinfections, and ethical decision making in ICU.
