Translate

The Medical Critical Care Service (MCCS) is comprised of board-certified and hospital-employed critical care physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who are dedicated to the academic mission at Inova Health System. The critical care physicians, also known as intensivists, conduct combined management and teaching rounds every day and serve as the attending of record for the majority of patients on the teaching service. These intensivists also administer the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) house staff lecture series. The educational director for the rotation is a member of this group and attends monthly Department of Medicine academic meetings to ensure an outstanding experience for the house staff during the rotation.
