Training Future Leaders in Anesthesiology & Perioperative Patient Care

Our Program

In our long history as an academic anesthesia department, The Medical College of Georgia Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine has established clerkships, a pain fellowship, and an anesthesiology critical care fellowship. A joint emergency medicine/anesthesiology critical care fellowship started in 2019, we  welcomed our first pediatric anesthesiology fellow in 2020, and the clinician-educator fellowship began in 2021. 

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.

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.

“Going from instructor level to assistant to associate to professorship, it tends to take women significantly longer, and we're not promoted in the same percentages as men are, and I feel it'll take another couple of decades to get us where we need to be,” said Ellen Basile, DO.
