Training Future Leaders in Anesthesiology & Perioperative Patient Care



In our long history as an academic anesthesia department, we have established clerkships, a pain fellowship, and an anesthesiology critical care fellowship. A joint emergency medicine/anesthesiology critical care fellowship was started in 2019, and we  welcomed our first pediatric anesthesiology fellow for the 2020-2021 academic year.

Our board-certified faculty paired with the school’s high-tech simulation lab provide an immersive learning experience. We believe in encouraging open feedback, new ideas, and innovations that lead to efficient clinical care and build strong relationships with our faculty and staff.

Our anesthesiology residency program provides comprehensive training in perioperative patient care, pain management and critical care medicine. We pride ourselves in training expert clinicians who are independent and confident when they graduate from our program. Our goal is to provide outstanding care to our patients by integrating education, evidence-based medicine and research in daily patient care.
