Anesthesiology for Professionals

Residency Training

The Department of Anesthesiology provides training opportunities for residents enrolled in an affiliated training program.

Our staff teaches residents in all three years clinical anesthesia residency training. We have a long-standing affiliation with the anesthesia residency program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/ Weill Cornell Medical College. Residents from this program learn the fundamentals of regional anesthesia during the CA-1 year with graduated responsibilities and exposure to advanced techniques and complex cases upon returning during subsequent years.

The Department of Anesthesiology hosts CA-3 residents from Johns Hopkins University and University of California - San Francisco. Residents from these affiliated programs are invited to participate in department-wide academic programs including CME Grand Rounds, Journal Clubs and Case Conferences. CA-3 residents are given the opportunity to present summation of a recent article to the Department of Anesthesiology during their rotation with the assistance of a faculty advisor and statistician.

Clinical Electives for Non-Affiliated Residents

The Department of Anesthesiology often receives requests for clinical electives from physicians enrolled in non-affiliated training programs. Regretfully, we are unable to grant these requests. Only residents enrolled in affiliated programs are permitted clinical privileges at HSS.
