Education is central to our mission at Weill Cornell Medicine, NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, and the Department of Anesthesiology. Our educational efforts are anchored by our residency program and multiple fellowship programs. We also offer learning opportunities to medical students, and continuing medical education through Grand Rounds and other programs.
All of the Department of Anesthesiology’s educational programs are designed to address the learning styles of the adult learner. The variety of formats in which our instructors teach and students learn include lectures, interactive question and answer sessions, case discussions, debates, mock oral boards, simulation sessions and workshops.
In our Residency Program, residents have the opportunity to learn state-of-the-art anesthesiology in a collegial and supportive environment. Our commitment to resident education ensures that upon completion of their training, graduates feel comfortable in any clinical situation.
