Welcome to the Department of Anesthesia at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and thank you for your interest in our residency program!
We offer a four-year ACGME-accredited program with a history of excellence. We practice in a very large, very busy, tertiary care hospital located in a near-perfect small university community. Our graduates are well prepared to enter their choice of private practice or fellowships in any anesthesia subspecialty.
The internship year includes rotations in anesthesia, medicine, surgery, critical care, pediatrics, palliative care, and emergency medicine. The experience provides outstanding preparation for the three-year clinical anesthesia residency.
The anesthesia residency incorporates direct patient care in a learning environment with solid didactics including lectures, simulations, workshops, discussion sessions, journal clubs, and morbidity and mortality conferences. The program facilitates the development of exceptional clinical skills and judgment in all anesthesia subspecialties. We are proud to say that all our graduates become leaders in their practice or at the state or national level.
Please take this chance to explore the possibilities you will find at the University of Iowa. For more information about the Department of Anesthesia, please visit the Department of Anesthesia website.
