Resident Block Schedule

Our resident schedule is divided between 13 blocks per year and emphasizes robust and comprehensive rotations through ORs, clinics, ICUs, Labor and Delivery units, and non-OR anesthesia sites to ensure our residents achieve clinical excellence in all aspects of perioperative care. CA-1 rotations focus on teaching residents core anesthetic concepts and skills, as well as providing an introduction to regional anesthesia, chronic pain, obstetric anesthesia, and postoperative care. During the CA-2 year, residents are exposed to advanced anesthesia subspecialties including pediatrics, cardiothoracic anesthesia, neuroanesthesia, and vascular anesthesia. During the final CA-3 year, our residents are given the flexibility to spend multiple months refining skills in specialties of interest while continuing to perfect their perioperative skillset in preparation for successful careers in either academic or private practice upon graduation.

2021 Update: We have further expanded our perioperative echo curriculum by purchasing 10 point-of-care ultrasounds and creating evidence-based usage criteria as well as expanded our training with a didactic/practical course starting intern year and a refresher simulation /didactic course for CA-2 year similar to our transesophageal training. We are also starting a new pediatric simulation curriculum for residents while other Peds rotations to ensure residents are prepared for low-frequency high acuity events.
