Our educational program for anesthesiology residency training encompasses many different educational modalities as we prepare you to become board-certified in anesthesiology. It includes supervised patient care, formal conferences, various types of examinations, simulation, and independent study on your part. Details of training requirements of the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) may be found in the ABA Booklet of Information, which is provided for each resident or on their web site at www.theaba.org.
The ABA requires twelve months of training in fields outside of anesthesiology which is called Clinical Base (CB) training and is traditionally done during the PGY 1 year. In 1998-99, we adopted a different approach. These twelve months are now divided between PGY 1 & PGY 2 years. This allows a graduated progression in learning and responsibility.
If you join the program as a CA 1 and have already satisfied your Clinical Base Requirements, you will enter into pure Clinical Anesthesia training.
