What Our Residents Say...


"My wife and I chose to come to Strong because it is a level 1 tertiary referral center with a strong Anesthesiology Residency Program. It meant that I would have the opportunity to experience a diversity of complex cases. Rochester is a gem of a little city with plenty of activities year round."

"We have really awesome staff, attendings, and co-residents. Our resident lounge helps us forge relationships with residents of all years. We have excellent case volume and start Anesthesiology OR time early during our intern year."

Robert Pranaat, M.D., Class of 2021
