Message from the Chair
Anesthesiology is an exciting and dynamic specialty. Advances in knowledge derived from the community of academic anesthesiologists have revolutionized our practice, making anesthesia a much safer intervention. As an academic department of anesthesiology, our primary mission is to provide superb clinical care in an environment of uncompromised patient safety. Additionally, we are leaders in education and research.
For our patients, we provide the highest quality of care, beginning with the period before surgery and culminating in an outstanding pain management service — a continuous spectrum of care. For physicians in training, The Mount Sinai Health System is an ideal setting in which to pursue your postgraduate education in perioperative medicine.
As a resident or fellow here, you will be taught by renowned educators in anesthesia, intensive care, and pain management, and you will be exposed to research that is expanding the boundaries of perioperative medical knowledge. You will also receive training in anesthesia subspecialties, developing the concentrated expertise that we believe is essential for the future practice of anesthesiology.
Our program at Mount Sinai will provide you with the foundation and skills needed not only to become a superb specialist, but also to lead the way in search of new insights in perioperative medicine. We welcome your interest and inquiries.
