Anesthesiology Residency Program

The mission of the Anesthesiology Residency Program at the University of Pittsburgh is to prepare physicians to be consultants in perioperative medicine and future leaders in the field. This goal is accomplished through broad supervised clinical experience, a comprehensive multi-faceted didactic series, and active research. Our department takes great pride in the educational focus that permeates all aspects of resident training.
