Welcome from Program Leadership

Welcome to the Residency Program in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Michigan.

It is an honor to be part of a group that provides exceptional education to medical students, residents, fellows, graduate students and post-doctoral students who will go on to make important contributions to the field and serve in leadership roles around the world.

We prepare specialists with a broad spectrum of knowledge, excellent clinical skills, and mature interpersonal communication skills to become the skilled professional. To accomplish this goal, the program's educational opportunities range from individualized instruction to small-group discussions and larger lectures.

Specifically, educational experiences include daily, informal case presentations where residents and faculty present their plans for the day's cases, as well as formal didactic presentations by faculty and nationally-recognized guest professors. The depth and breadth of the training we provide is exceptional. I encourage you to explore the components of our program.

We provide outstanding training through our residency program with the goal of developing motivated physicians into consultants. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our remarkable program. I welcome any questions or comments.
