The Training Program

AlethiaTeachingORThe anesthesiology residency program at UAB is a national leader in anesthesia education, combining robust clinical experiences, strong didactic program and opportunities for leadership and service.  The Department of Anesthesiology at UAB performs more than 40,000 anesthetic procedures annually at University Hospital, UAB Highlands, Callahan Eye Hospital, Kirklin Clinic, Children's Hospital of Alabama and Birmingham Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Our goal is to provide a balanced academic environment in which aspiring young physicians develop into excellent consultant anesthesiologists. Such an environment promotes clinical excellence, sparks investigative interests and helps to develop administrative and teaching skills that will be applicable throughout an evolving career. Upon graduation, these physicians enter the practice of their choice, whether private or academic, and rapidly develop the respect and admiration of their colleagues and patients.
