Clinical Anesthetists

 

Clinical anesthetists are integral to the Department of Anesthesiology and valued members of our anesthesia care team, comprised of faculty anesthesiologists, certified anesthesiologist assistants and certified registered nurse anesthetists. Clinical anesthetists care for patients in multiple clinical subspecialties including orthopedics, otolaryngology, vascular, pediatrics, urology, neurosurgery, plastics, peripheral vascular, thoracic, trauma, transplant, and cardiac. They also work across multiple UW Health facilities including University Hospital, The American Center, Digestive Health Center and Madison Surgery Center. 

 

Our group of 65 clinical anesthetists is still growing to meet UW Health’s expanding patient care needs. Clinical anesthetists enjoy competitive salary, comprehensive benefits, excellent clinical case variety, a wide range of educational opportunities and flexible scheduling.
