The Ohio State University’s Department of Anesthesiology residency program combines a clinical experience filled with challenging cases across the spectrum of anesthesiology subspecialties, combined with a strong didactic and simulation program that facilitates successful completion of the board examination process. This transpires in an environment that is friendly, supportive and stimulating. The residency program offers No Pain Labor and Delivery Global Health Initiatives, a non-profit that focuses on correcting the unnecessarily high cesarean delivery rate and the poor utilization of anesthesia during labor in China.

The Anesthesiology Residency offers a Three-Year Advanced Program and a Four-Year Categorical Program. While the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)’s Residency Review Committee for Anesthesiology, maintains a list of required cases and procedures our residents almost always complete this requirement by the middle of their CA-2 year. The clinical experience available at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center permits our residents to use their CA-3 year for the pursuit of subspecialties of interest, including a variety of clinical and basic science research opportunities, without being encumbered by having to complete case requirements. With the exception of the rotations in pediatric and regional anesthesia, all rotations are conducted at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center, fostering a “team” approach and allowing great friendships and camaraderie to develop during residency training.

How to Apply

Applications for residency are accepted through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) ONLY. Please refer to ERAS or the contact person at your school to learn more about applying for residency.

ERAS, which is sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), transmits residency applications, letters of recommendation, deans' letters, transcripts and other supporting credentials from medical schools to residency program directors. We do not require any documents in addition to ERAS requirements.

The Department of Anesthesiology participates in the National Resident Matching Program. Through this program, 14 residents will be selected to participate in our programs. There are 11 four-year categorical positions and three three-year advanced slots.
