Welcome to the UNC Anesthesiology Residency Program,

The UNC Department of Anesthesiology, which dates back to 1969, has a long tradition of training outstanding anesthesiologists. Our ACGME-accredited program is composed of 52 residency positions (10 PGY-1 positions and 14 positions per class in PGY 2-4 years) and every year, we attract some of the top residency candidates from across the country. The size of our program is matched with an all-encompassing clinical experience that leads to a greater competence upon completion of training. Despite the volume and acuity of care offered at UNC–a Level 1 Trauma Center–our residents train in a collegial and supportive environment with a strong academic mission. We are committed to fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace that enhances our learning environment, promotes innovative research and the quality of care we deliver.

The foundation of our specialty’s growth and success is rooted in the anesthesiology residency training program. I have complete confidence that there is no better place to train than at UNC. The residency is the focal point of our department’s educational mission. I am continually amazed by the quality of individuals that make up our department. I could not imagine being anywhere but here. Please look around our website, but more importantly, I hope I get a chance to meet you in person.
