Weill Cornell Anesthesiology is an integrated 4-year categorical program that includes a ‘transitional’ style intern year. Though the rotations each year may vary somewhat between individuals, all residents finish their residency with a similar complement in clinical exposure having far exceeded minimums as required by the American Board of Anesthesiology. During the CA-3 year, residents may select up to 6 months of elective rotations in order to focus on a specific area of clinical practice or research.

Weill Cornell Anesthesiology residents perform rotations at three institutions: NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, and the Hospital for Special Surgery.
