The program director, in collaboration with the resident, will design the resident’s CA-3 year of training. Resident assignments in the CA-3 year include the more difficult or complex anesthetic procedures and care of the most seriously ill patients.

CA-3 residents are required to complete a minimum of six months of advanced anesthesia training. They may spend the remaining months in advanced anesthesia training in one to three selected subspecialty rotations or in research. The training culminates in sufficiently independent responsibility for clinical decision-making and patient care, so that the graduating resident demonstrates sound clinical judgment in a wide variety of clinical situations and can function as a leader of a perioperative care team.

  • Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE)
  • Advanced Clinical (AC)
  • Non-Operating Room Anesthesia (NORA)
