We are a positive, educationally focused family-oriented department, and actively recruit medical students and residents to our specialty. The best way to maintain our high quality is to attract the best resident applicants, to educate them with care, and to treat them well.
The Department of Anesthesiology is active in the educational programs of the School of Medicine and the other schools of UTHSCSA. Electives in Anesthesiology are offered in both the third and fourth years.
Opportunities for research are available to medical students and residents. They may participate in both clinical and laboratory studies. The UTHSCSA encourages clinical research at the faculty and resident level. Research funding is available from governmental and private granting agencies, as well as institutional grants.
