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.
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.
