Critical care presents exciting healthcare opportunities and challenges as each critical care team member brings knowledge and skills specific to the chosen discipline. Undergraduate students within healthcare disciplines are engaged in gaining mastery of profession-specific content while deciding the focal direction for their professional practice.
Multiple disciplines are represented within the critical care team. Critical care practice can be visualized as a tree, with each limb representing a discipline or medical specialty. Major branches include anesthesiology, neurology, nursing, pediatrics, pharmacy, pulmonology, and surgery.
