Getting Started

Getting started photos 

Your first month of anesthesia training is designed to prepare you to provide care to the healthy adult patient and to expose you to more specialized types of patients and techniques. The course includes time in the operating room, training in the human patient simulator, twice-daily didactic conferences, and the Anesthesia Knowledge Test at the beginning and end of the month. Basics of Anesthesia is used as the primary reference text this month. You will be supervised one-on-one by an attending anesthesiologist, or will be paired with another resident throughout the entire first month.

At the beginning of your first month, you will be provided with a set of books that have been pre-selected by the program director, as well as an iPad mini, the Point of Care Ultrasound probe trainers and software, and a department fleece with your name embroidered.

Case Counts

Graduated Clinical Anesthesia Assignments

Much of the learning and teaching of anesthesia occurs in the Operating Room. You will be assigned cases of increasing difficulty with time to help accomplish competency. Each resident is supervised by an attending anesthesiologist, who is responsible for supervising no more than two residents at a time. Cases are discussed with the attending ahead of time and a plan is generated. You are expected to read as necessary to be prepared for the case; the attending provides the supervision and teaching to ensure safe care for the patient and a good educational experience for the resident. On subspecialty rotations, broader educational objectives and techniques are added. The program of graduated clinical assignments is designed to provide progressively challenging clinical problems, as well as an increasing degree of independence with the aim of graduating competent and confident practitioners in the entire spectrum of anesthesia care.

Case Experience

All residents exceed RRC minimum standards, and in most categories exceed 1.5-4 times the RCC procedure requirements.
