Welcome to Anesthesiology

The Department of Anesthesia, founded in 1968, quickly established itself as a national leader in academics as well as clinical anesthesiology and resident education. Over the past four decades, we have grown dramatically both in the volume and scope of anesthetic practice. That growth saw a concurrent expansion of both medical education programs and research activities in the basic, translational and clinical realms.
