The Department of Anesthesiology offers a four-week elective designed to provide an in-depth introduction to Anesthesiology for fourth-year students. Each student will work one-on-one with an attending Anesthesiologist. Special emphasis will be placed on clinical skills with progressive responsibility assigned to each student. Exposure to many sub-specialty areas including Obstetric, Pediatric, Neurosurgical and Cardiovascular Anesthesia are available to meet individual interests. Students will be involved in preoperative evaluation, preparation of patients for anesthesia and surgery, choice of anesthetic agents and techniques, airway management, physiologic alterations relating to surgery and the patient's medical condition, pharmacology of the drugs used by anesthesiologists, and common techniques in regional anesthesia.
