Education & Training – Anesthesia Residency Program
The program has dedicated educational time each week, including a comprehensive didactic conference schedule to provide a solid foundation of anesthesia knowledge and skills. Residents are routinely relieved from clinical duty by faculty so that they can attend these important sessions. The academic year is divided into one month blocks, each with a specific focus. The didactic lecture topics are designed to teach important information about the coinciding monthly focus. Previous monthly topics have included trauma, coexisting disease, pain, geriatric anesthesia, ICU, pediatrics, cardiac/thoracic, vascular/transplant, neuro, and obstetrics.
Simulation sessions are held in the Solomont Clinical Simulation Center on the 3rd Wednesday and Thursday of the month in lieu of a regular lecture. Journal club is held once a month on Wednesdays immediately following the 4:30 – 5:30 pm lecture. Residents review and discuss articles from anesthesiology and related journals in a faculty led open format.
