Welcome from the Program Director

Thank you for your interest in our five-year combined program!

Our combined anesthesiology and emergency medicine training program, the first of its kind, offers an exclusive opportunity for trainees to obtain dual board certification in two highly complementary fields. Both disciplines offer high-yield training in procedural skills and critical care management. When merged together, they offer a trainee the ability to practice in any setting — from the emergency department to the operating room or intensive care unit. In addition, the ability to work seamlessly across departments encourages interprofessional education and collaboration, as well as multidisciplinary scholarly work. Our graduates represent an exceptional commodity as dual-board eligible physicians in academic or community practice environments and they bring a broad skillset to low-resource settings.

Both the American Board of Emergency Medicine and the American Board of Anesthesiology have approved our program, making it the first nationally approved program of its kind. Our curriculum encourages trainees to devote five years to longitudinal niche development in popular areas such as critical care, ultrasound, acute pain management, international or austere medicine, and medical education.

We look forward to meeting you!
