The University of Connecticut Anesthesiology
Residency Program offers the resources of a
university-sponsored residency combined with the
clinical variety and volume of cases available at our
large affiliated teaching hospitals. Private
practitioners with specialty training, many years of
experience in clinical anesthesiology and a commitment
to education, comprise the majority of the faculty.
Access to research staff and support at the university
rounds out the experience.
Our focus is directed toward comprehensive training that molds a well-rounded perioperative physician and consultant in anesthesiology. This is accomplished by a three-pronged approach to training that strives for clinical excellence, academic achievement, and scholarly activity. This basic philosophy prepares our residents for careers in either academic medicine or private practice. Our residents also learn about the economics of anesthesiology and the importance of participating in our local and national professional organizations. We take pride in providing rotations and assignments based on educational value rather than manpower needs. We have high expectations of our residents; however, we acknowledge that differences in learning styles exist and will provide each resident with the personal attention that he or she needs in order to succeed.
