The PGY-2 and PGY-3 Years
The PGY-2 (CA-1) year includes blocks (4 weeks=1 block) of basic anesthesia (approximately 8-10 blocks). Later in the CA1 year, residents begin subspecialty training. By the end of the CA2 year, residents have generally completed all the subspecialty rotations and met all the minimum case requirements identified by the ACGME and the ABA.
What's involved with each of these rotations is described by clicking the links below.
Total = approximately 24 months; however, these numbers will vary a small amount between individual residents.
