The curriculum of the program far exceeds the standards required for accreditation, focusing on developing graduates that will have a substantial impact on their patients, community and the specialty. Education is delivered through weekly seminars, case presentations, guest lecturers and patient-focused, evidence-based clinical practice. Monthly morbidity & mortality conference, journal club, OMS board review and emergency drills are also integral to the residents’ learning experience.
Carefully selected clinical rotations and electives provide the resident with a well-rounded foundation in anesthesia, medicine and surgery. Off-service rotations include adult/pediatric anesthesia, internal medicine, acute care & trauma surgery, critical care, neurosurgery, otolaryngology and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Research design, composition and analysis are emphasized throughout the training program. Each resident is expected to be involved in at least two published manuscripts by the completion of the program. Monthly research meetings provide an open forum to provide support, guidance and encouragement.
In addition to our well-developed and comprehensive curriculum, residents are strongly encouraged to travel and participate in relevant conferences and surgical workshops.
