Greetings! Thank you for your interest in the Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine Residency Program at UAB. We understand how important it is to choose a residency that fits your needs, personality, and career goals.
Educationally, our program is well-balanced. Our didactics consist of daily lectures, including keyword topics, Grand Rounds, and quality improvement discussions. We also offer mock oral board exams and have several previous board examiners on faculty.
Clinically, our program is excellent, with nearly all residents exceeding the ACGME case/procedure requirements before starting the CA-3 year. This creates opportunities for residents to gain further experience in areas of interest through electives. As the state’s only dedicated Level-1 trauma center, UAB provides outstanding ICU experiences in the Neurosurgical, Trauma/Burn, and Surgical ICUs. Residents gain pediatric experience at the state’s only dedicated Children’s Hospital, as well as regional anesthesia training in our outpatient pain program. UAB’s nationally renowned transplant program includes liver, heart, lung, kidney, and pancreas transplantation.
Outside of the hospital, Birmingham is a fantastic place to live. The cost of living is low, and there are numerous social and outdoor activities throughout the city and surrounding areas. We enjoy being part of this program! Please feel free to contact us about our program and community.
