Case Counts

Graduated Clinical Anesthesia Assignments

Much of the learning and teaching of anesthesia occurs in the Operating Room. You will be assigned cases of increasing difficulty with time to help accomplish competency. Each resident is supervised by an attending anesthesiologist, who is responsible for supervising no more than two residents at a time. Cases are discussed with the attending ahead of time and a plan is generated. You are expected to read as necessary to be prepared for the case; the attending provides the supervision and teaching to ensure safe care for the patient and a good educational experience for the resident. On subspecialty rotations, broader educational objectives and techniques are added. The program of graduated clinical assignments is designed to provide progressively challenging clinical problems, as well as an increasing degree of independence with the aim of graduating competent and confident practitioners in the entire spectrum of anesthesia care.

Case Experience
