The Department of Anesthesiology is proud to offer a three-year residency program with 24 residents that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and American Board of Anesthesiology. Maimonides is a major affiliate of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Our teaching staff of 30 faculty physicians, in addition to residents, provide over 16,000 operative procedures annually. The staff-to-resident ratio allows for a one-on-one teaching experience in the operating room, assuring an exceptional educational experience.
Residents are given ample time to attend didactic conferences and other scheduled educational programs. Written and oral examinations, similar to those given by the American Board of Anesthesiology, are administered throughout the academic year to prepare residents for the Board examination. Clinically, our residents are proficient in performing all sub-specialties of anesthesia required by the RRC and offered by the program at Maimonides Medical Center at the level of a consultant anesthesiologist by the end of the CA-3 year of training. Experiences in didactic presentation during clinical conferences should prepare our residents to deliver lectures with confidence, while developing excellent communication skills. Their participation in writing chapters, entry-level research projects and journal club presentations will prepare residents to critically evaluate research articles and participate in research under supervision by the end of their training.
The important goal of our program is to prepare residents to successfully pass the ABA examination. Incoming residents are assigned a preceptor to guide them through the initial period of residency, as well as throughout their residency training.
The unique features of our program include:
- As of June 2003, a new simulation-training program has been incorporated into our teaching curriculum.
- Diversity of patient population.
- A tertiary hospital where residents get to manage high-acuity patients in all subspecialties.
