Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology residency program at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth where our goal is to demonstrate excellence through innovative education, clinical training, and research. The Department of Anesthesiology is a comprehensive residency program situated in the world’s largest medical center. Our residents train at some of the nation’s leading institutions including The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston Methodist, Harris Health System’s Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital, and Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. Currently, we have 22 positions at the CBY level, 27 resident positions in each of the CA-1 to CA-3 categorical years, and fellowship opportunities in numerous subspecialties.

The excellence of any educational institution is determined by the caliber of its faculty and the rigors of its clinical training. With our positioning, we afford our residents unparalleled access to renowned hospital systems with a diversity of learning environments, pathology, and index cases. Additionally, our faculty and adjunct faculty are nationally recognized for their dedication to research, education, and clinical training. We are currently experiencing an exciting period of growth with expansion of service lines in heart failure and transplant services (including liver, kidney, and heart), trauma anesthesia with the Memorial Hermann Red Duke Trauma Institute to service one of the nation’s busiest trauma facilities, and a critical care expansion that includes three new intensive care units. This diversity of experience, coupled with robust didactics and innovative simulation and cadaver labs, produces capable, board-certified, well-rounded practitioners that are ready to become future leaders in health care and patient safety.

Again, thank you for visiting our webpage and welcome to the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Department of Anesthesiology.
