    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    While the clinical disciplines who practice in the pediatric critical care unit are increasing, this chapter focuses primarily on physician career development, because research for the other medical disciplines is currently limited Nonetheless, many of the career opportunities discussed in this chapter are also available to nurse practitioners and physician assistants. It is important to consider a career in epochs, recognizing that career expertise develops over time, and focus may change. Never before have had so many opportunities existed in critical care. It is the skills sets we use as intensivists, which help us develop, not only as clinicians, but as educators, basic scientists, administrators, trialists, implementation scientists, patient safety and quality improvement specialists, and medical informatics officers.
