Please see the Critical Care Resident Handbook for 2019-20.
The Section of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Manitoba is a busy enterprise, both clinically and academically.
The Section originated as part of the Department of Internal Medicine, and remains so today, though the more than 40 intensivists on our faculty come from a variety of departments including Anesthesia, Emergency Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Surgery.
We provide critical services for adults in Manitoba, northwestern Ontario, and Nunavut. Because of the distances, critical care transport, including specially equipped aircraft, is integral to our clinical work.
We have Intensive Care Units in two academic/tertiary hospitals (Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre, St. Boniface Hospital) and four ICUs in four community hospitals (Concordia Hospital, Grace Hospital, Seven Oaks General Hospital.There are separate Medical and Surgical/Trauma ICUs at Health Sciences Centre; St. Boniface Hospital has a mixed Medical-Surgical ICU and a Cardiovascular Surgery ICU. Intensive Care Units within the city possess advanced support capability including invasive mechanical ventilation, continuous renal replacement therapy and Extra-Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO). Approximately 5000 patients are admitted to our ICUs annually.
Our faculty also provide Critical Care education for medical students, residents and fellows.
We also perform a variety of ICU-related research, that includes both clinical and basic research.
