Department of
Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine

Curriculum

The first year of the combined program is identical to that for categorical pediatric residents, including continuity clinic. Additionally, residents would also attend one half day of anesthesia didactic sessions per month. Rotations include, but are subject to change:

  • General Inpatient Pediatrics
  • Subspecialty Experiences
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
  • Term Newborn
  • Pediatric Anesthesiology

The second year will be the same as that of a first year anesthesiology resident, including the following rotations:

  • Basic Anesthesiology
  • Post-Anesthesia Care Unit
  • Pediatric Anesthesiology
  • Preoperative Clinic

Beginning in the second year, the combined resident will maintain close ties with the Department of Pediatrics by maintaining a monthly continuity clinic – conducting both well child visits and acute illness follow-up appointments. The resident will also attend monthly pediatric didactic sessions. The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine values these responsibilities as imperative to the resident’s training and attendance at the pediatric clinic and didactics are guaranteed.

The program’s remaining three years will consist of advanced subspecialty rotations and elective time. The resident will alternate every six months between pediatrics and anesthesiology. Throughout the entire program, residents will maintain pediatric continuity clinic and didactics while on anesthesiology rotation and will attend anesthesiology didactics while on pediatrics rotation.
