The faculty members listed below are considered our training program’s CORE faculty, as defined by the ACGME.  These are the people with whom you would be spending the bulk of your training during residency. It should be noted, though, that we have more than twice the amount of physician-anesthesiologists on our faculty. And you will likely be spending time with many, if not all, of those people during your training, as well. In addition, there are countless faculty members from other departments who help us train you to become specialists in Perioperative Medicine.

For a complete listing of our faculty please visit Our Faculty and for a listing of our department research please visit our research page.
