  • 93AN713 - ANESTHESIA AND CRITICAL CARE

    Faculty: Timothy T. Webb, MD

    Description

    The discipline of anesthesia is closely connected with critical care medicine. Most often, students interested in a career in anesthesia often experience the operating room and intensive care unit in separate clinical experiences. This elective allows for students to experience both during a two-week elective. Students will spend one week with a critical care trained anesthesiologist on service caring for patients in the surgical intensive care unit (SICU). During the second week, students will have the opportunity to work with anesthesia residents and faculty in the operating room delivering clinical anesthesia to surgical patients.

  • 93AN740 - ANESTHESIOLOGY AND PERIOPERATIVE MEDICINE I

    Faculty: Corinna Yu, M.D.

Independent and self-directed learning will be required through Canvas modules, assigned reading, case discussions, and reflective writing.

    Students may work a few late afternoon and evening shifts in order to experience call-like schedules and cases, but neither in-house nor at-home call is required.
