Medical Student Program

Sim lab with Med students- KK

Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology student courses and activities! We hope you find time to rotate in one of our many courses, participate as an extern, or come to one of our Anesthesia Interest Group meetings. You can find information on each of these below. 

Whether you’re trying to decide on anesthesiology as a career or you have chosen to pursue a different specialty altogether, rotating with the anesthesia department will provide an invaluable experience that you’ll be able to draw from throughout your practice of medicine.  

If you choose to rotate through one of our courses, you would have the opportunity to gain experience with procedures such as airway management and line placement. You would also gain a better understanding of both perioperative and critical care medicine in a wide variety of patient populations: geriatrics, adults, pediatrics and obstetrics, all of which have their own anesthetic implications.
