• One of the most frequently asked questions is: “What rotations do you do?” To help answer this question, our Chiefs have created this summary of the typical rotations you will do as an anesthesia resident at UT Southwestern. Certainly, the schedules change occasionally, and you can tailor your residency (specifically your CA3 year) to accommodate your needs and practice preferences. But just to give you an idea….


    Intern Year Rotations

    • We are in accordance w/ ACGME guidelines for Graduate Medical Education regarding the Anesthesiology Residency:  "12 months of 'broad education in medical disciplines relevant to the practice of anesthesiology; capability to provide the Clinical Base Year within the same institution is desirable but not required for accreditation"
    • We meet this need by exposing you Internal Medicine, EM, Various Intensive Care Units (Surgical and Medical) and Pediatrics!
    • The Last Month of the year is catered towards honing your skills and preparing you for your life as an Anesthesiologist



    Clinical Anesthesia Rotations
    • Due to our various associated hospitals, we are able to give our residents a robust clinical Anesthesiology experience. 
    • Our CA-1 year focuses on honing in our resident's experience with overall basics of general Anesthesia as well as exposure to critical care medicine.
    • Our CA-2/CA-3 years allow for exposure to the subspecialties in the field of Anesthesia including: Acute/Chronic Pain, Regional, Cardiac, Pediatric, Neuroanesthesia, Critical Care Medicine.
