Anesthesiology Residency at UMMS-Baystate
Our 3-year ACGME-accredited Anesthesiology residency ensures that you'll leave with the necessary knowledge base, appropriate clinical skills, and experience in giving professional presentations to prepare you for whatever career path you might choose.
Advanced Airway Management Skills
You will have two focused months on the Advanced Airway rotation using all three advanced techniques—both flexible and rigid fiberoptics and intubating LMA—to intubate patients.
Because 2/3 of anesthesia programs in this country do not offer any formalized instruction in this area, our residents typically go on to become leaders of difficult airway management practice and training.
One-on-one Exposure to the Big Cases
Our clinical volume of more than 36,000 cases per year means you will see an extremely wide variety of cases from the complicated to those typically seen in a community setting.
Many departments with our case volume have two or three times more residents than we do. Our relatively small number of residents assures that you will have plenty of one-on-one exposure to the big cases.
Our diverse clinical case load prepares you for academia or community practice.
A Friendly, Supportive Place to Learn
With approximately 2 faculty members for each resident, we are able to develop closer, more effective resident-faculty relationships.
We have all that other university programs do, but in a uniquely collegial environment.
