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 Program has a long-standing tradition of excellence in preparing graduates for autonomous practice. Our Program offers a Three-Year Advanced Program and a Four-Year Categorical Program which includes a Clinical Base Year (CBY). The clinical training available at Ohio State's Wexner Medical Center is superlative, the majority of our residents complete the requirements for cases and procedures set by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)’s Anesthesiology Residency Review Committee by the middle of their CA-2 year.  This clinical experience  permits our residents to use their CA-3 year to customize their education to  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, regional and ambulatory anesthesia, all rotations are conducted at The Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s main campus fostering a “team” approach and allowing great friendships and camaraderie to develop during residency training.
