Residency Program History

Here at UCSD we provide our residents a personalized experience that prepares them for their chosen career path. Our residents can expect a tailored and unique experience due to the diverse background of our faculty which ranges from extensive experience in private practice, to nationally regarded specialty trained anesthesiolgists, to physician scientists. Our residents benefit from a distinct patient population and the collegial relationship with renowned surgeons that pioneered procedures such as combined heart-liver transplants and Pulmonary Thrombo-endarterectomy. At UCSD, we have created a unique and forward looking experience for our residents that provides them a perioperative experience ranging from a preop-clinic, that uses genomics to tailor anesthetic plans, to a forward thinking regional service and pain service that promotes opioid sparing anesthetics and are on the forefront fighting the opioid crisis and finally an ICU service that manages all ECMO's and advanced cardiac devices for the hospitals. If you come with an open mind to UCSD we promise you that training here will provide you all the tools to excel as an Anesthesiologist, wherever you go.
