Residents can participate in global anesthesia efforts (including clinical service, education, training, and research) to support patients and providers in low- and middle-income countries. Learn more about Global Programs.
Residents participate in simulation activities throughout their training. First-year simulations focus on procedural skills such as central line placement and advanced airway management. Clinical anesthesia sessions offer active training for crisis scenarios and rare anesthesia-related events and provide practice in difficult patient scenarios.
Residents and fellows have the opportunity to teach in many settings including leading medical student small-group sessions, teaching procedural skills in the UW Health Clinical Simulation Program and teaching students and junior residents in the operating room.
