Spring residency panel:
In the spring we plan on hosting a panel with fourth year medical students that recently matched into anesthesiology. They will share their experiences along the interview trail as well as share any advice they have about preparing for residency in anesthesiology. The goal is to help you learn more about the application/interviewing process, and get advice on how to become more competitive applicants.
Shadowing opportunities are available year round. The goal is to learn more about anesthesia in the OR. Shadowing is available Saturdays.
