General OR and Weinberg
The backbone of general anesthesia training at Hopkins is made up of the Zayed Building OR (ZBOR) and Weinberg rotations. Designed for CA-1 residents, these rotations expose junior residents to what it's like to be an anesthesia generalist. Cases encountered while on the ZBOR and Weinberg rotations include basic abdominal, basic orthopedic, gynecologic, neuro/spine, and plastic surgery cases. Here, they learn the basics of airway management, fluid and electrolyte management, blood product administration, pain management, and neuromuscular blockade. More advanced cases may be added in as appropriate, commensurate with experience.
Call is distributed evenly and is typically every fifth or sixth night for CA-3 residents and is on a night float system for CA-1 and CA-2 residents.
