The Anesthesiology Residency at the Icahn School of Medicine offers an exceptional training experience through rigorous clinical preparation. Our mission is to train residents to become proficient anesthesiologists. Our residency offers the ideal learning environment for developing future leaders in our field.
Our residents benefit from training within one of the most dynamic cities in the world, New York City. Residents receive the bulk of their training at our two main clinical sites, Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s. We are not only a member of Mount Sinai Health System Department of Anesthesiology but our training programs provide residents with the opportunity to participate in clinical rotations with other world-class hospitals in New York City.
Second- and third-year residents receive sub-specialty training at other hospitals in Manhattan including The Mount Sinai Hospital, Columbia-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital, and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This experience exposes you to world renowned experts in pediatrics, thoracic, cardiac, and liver transplant.
We remain extremely proud of the in-house knowledge we offer to residents. Our department is home to national leaders in the fields of cardiac, obstetric, regional anesthesiology, and pain management. Past and current leaders of this department grace the spines of the leading texts in their respective subspecialties. Our faculty are leaders in the New York State Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and multiple anesthesiology subspecialty societies. Our leaders serve on the American Board Anesthesiologists as written exam question writers and oral examiners. This experience provides our residents with unrivaled mentorship and preparation for the examinations. The New York School of Regional Anesthesia was founded within our department and has produced many of our current faculty.
We continue to be a powerhouse of regional anesthetic training whose expertise is sought out by practitioners worldwide. We take seriously our role in developing the careers of our trainees beyond the clinical realm. With our mid-size program and small faculty group, our residents are well acquainted with our faculty and have immediate access to their expertise and guidance.
