Visiting Student Courses

The University of Oklahoma, Department of Anesthesiology accepts 4th year MD and DO students from other accredited US medical schools.

Each student will work along side faculty and residents within our department and gain insight into some of the expanded applications of Anesthesiology. The students will follow assigned patients from preoperative evaluation through convalescence under the supervision of residents and faculty members.
