Dental Anesthesiology - Program Outline
The program will include rotations in internal medicine, surgical ICU, emergency department, and pediatric medicine. A minumum of 18 months will be spent on the anesthesia service providing care in the operating room. While the focus will be on dental, pediatric dental, maxillofacial, and head and neck procedures, the resident will be exposed to all forms of anesthesia and pain control and all manner of OR cases. While on the anesthesia service, the DA resident will function as a full member of the team. Their responsibilities will be commensurate with their level of training.

The remainder of the clinical experience will be gained providing intubated and non-intubated anesthesia services at the Rose F. Kennedy Center and in the various out-patient dental settings at Jacobi Medical Center and off-site.
