Since its beginning in 1902, Cedars-Sinai has evolved to meet the healthcare needs of one of the most diverse regions in the nation, continually setting new standards in quality and innovation in patient care, research, teaching and community service.

With volume, variety and scope of clinical experience available, our program warrants that residents will obtain superior exposure to all components of anesthesiology and its subspecialties. Additionally, our residents engage in simulation experiences, ultrasound workshops, ECHO workshops, OSCE exam practice, mock oral and written board exam review. Residents attend the ASA conference yearly and are encouraged to take advantage of hospital-based, national and international opportunities.

Beyond the strong clinical experience, our educational program is structured to respond to the changing needs of its residents and the profession. Additionally, residents' participation in hospital-based, national and international activities fosters the management skills and creativity we value in our residents.

While the strength of the program is the volume and diversity of cases at Cedars-Sinai, we have a family-like atmosphere within the department. There is an open-door policy for any issues or concerns that arise during the program to address your needs and work with you to overcome any obstacles.
