In addition to the core Colleges Curriculum, each rotation has its own educational program to enrich the resident's experience while on that rotation. For example, residents on pediatric anesthesia may attend a lecture on a core topic in pediatric anesthesia twice a week while they are on the rotation. These lectures are given by the peds anesthesia faculty and fellows. On cardiac anesthesia, residents are relieved from the operating room to attend lectures on cardiac anesthesia and echocardiography. The OB anesthesia rotation has a lecture for every day of the rotation. The neuroanesthesia rotation has a combination of lectures and readings specific to issues within that specialty.
