  1. Hi everyone, Long time reader and first time poster here! Thanks so much Have a question about ICU in terms of outlook and workload. I am an IM resident who has not done any ICU rotations as yet. I have a friend who finished his and he had a long talk with his attendings and fellows before he left about career planning. He is now full blown ICU. They talked about community ICU in particular and the workload and salary. The basic points were: -ICU weeks (7 days) pay about 25-30k a week -work consists of mainly rounding with a coffee and family meetings -nights are spent at home while the GIM in the ER does the hard work -pretty standard is to work 18-20 weeks a year of ICU and 12 weeks of base speciality (ie ER or GIM shifts). That’s almost 20 weeks a year off and a salary of about 600k! I am not sure if this is real or just academic doctors that are saying the grass is greener on the otherside? If it is his sounds incredible. Lots of time off, incredible pay, no overhead and night work all done by someone else. Even days it sounds like lots of time to eat lunch and have a coffee etc. 600k with 20 weeks off - sign me up! I was was thinking of setting up a community ICU elective in the GTA is this is true - anyone have any suggestions if this is all true? thanks
  2. Wondering if anyone has done or heard anything about ICU electives at St.Paul's? I'm looking to do it in my 4th year elective and just wondering what people thought about the rotation

  4. I'm an R1 in IM, currently trying to decide whether I want to pursue subspecialty training in Critical Care or GiM. I love the idea of CC, but I know the job market is bleak. I'd be more comfortable pursuing it if I knew I could work as a general internist/hospitalist as backup. Does anyone know of any intensivists doing this? If so, what is the size of the center? Much appreciated!
