Unparalleled Clinical Experience

For twenty-one consecutive years in a row, US News and World Reports named Johns Hopkins America's Best Hospital. Because of our outstanding reputation, physicians from across the country and around the world entrust some of their most difficult cases to our care. In addition to being a world-renowned referral center, we are also a level 1 trauma center and a regional pediatric trauma center. In this exceptional clinical environment, our residents are trained to manage the most challenging cases that anesthesiology has to offer.

Residents at Hopkins enjoy a clinical experience that will prepare them for any academic or private practice job they could find. Our case numbers exceed the national average in many categories including pediatric, regional, thoracic, and intracranial surgery. Our surgical transplant team attracts a large number of renal, liver, lung, and cardiac transplants each year, and residents are involved as the primary caregivers in each of these cases. Residents are able to get significant burn anesthesia exposure at our Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Campus. If additional regional experience is desired, we offer an optional month-long regional anesthesia rotation at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City (accommodations are provided by HSS). Residents may seek out additional experience with large vascular procedures at the VA Hospital in Baltimore.

Our program requires a minimum of four months in one of our ICUs. We offer a variety of ICU experience: Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU), Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU), Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and the Cardiac Surgical Intensive Care Unit (CSICU). Residents interested in additional ICU time are always able to arrange it. In addition, we provide an ICU clinical track for residents to pursue that includes residency in anesthesia and fellowship in critical care.

Finally, our pain management rotations are outstanding opportunites to learn about the physiology of pain and its management. We offer a month-long chronic pain clinic rotation, a month-long acute post-surgical pain rotation, and a two-week pediatric pain rotation.
