Emphasis is on the management of a heavy emergency caseload, with at least 30% of time spent as part of the team overseeing the critical care unit. The critical care resident is often responsible for assisting with cases requiring ventilation or having special intensive care requirements such as peritoneal dialysis or post-arrest and resuscitation management. Board-certified faculty members in direct support of the program include 6 internists, 2 cardiologists, 2 oncologists, 3 neurologists/neurosurgeons, 5 anesthesiologists, 5 radiologists, 1 radiation oncologist, 6 surgeons, 2 dermatologists, 1 dentist, 2 ophthalmologists, and 2 zoological medicine specialists.

The residents are regularly responsible for the supervision and teaching of students and interns during cageside rounds and emergency receiving shifts. Residents present lectures to the college, interns and the nursing staff in their respective lecture series. The emergency critical care service will hold weekly didactic rounds which cover physiology and pathophysiology topics, as well as review of current literature and morbidity and mortality rounds. These sessions are geared toward board review. Other specialty services and the house officers in the hospital also have regular didactic sessions. The residents are encouraged to join those sessions. The second- and third-year residents are permitted increased flexibility in scheduling to concentrate their efforts in an area or areas in which they have a special interest.

The Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital is a spacious facility with sophisticated diagnostic and patient care equipment: color-flow Doppler ultrasonography, 4D transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, digital fluoroscopy, scintigraphy, computed tomography, 3T MRI, video endoscopy, nuclear imaging, direct and indirect blood pressure monitors, acid-base/blood-gas analyzers, capnographs, and pulse oximeters. Radiation capabilities include TomoTherapy and iridium implant brachytherapy. Surgical instrumentation allows complex orthopedic, thoracic, and abdominal procedures. Strong support services including nuclear medicine, clinical pathology, radiation therapy, clinical microbiology and physical rehabilitation promote optimal patient management and clinical investigation.
