Anesthesiology Residency Application and Selection Process

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Anesthesiology Residency Program is a highly competitive clinical training program which greatly values the supportive environment in which our residents are trained. As such, we are seeking academically highly competitive candidates who also posses the ability to work exceedingly well in a team, have insatiable intellectual curiosity and have demonstrated a wide range of interests and accomplishments. We take pride in training future leaders in the field as well as superb clinicians, researchers and those with keen interest in community service, public policy and global health.

We welcome applicants from the U.S. medical schools and international medical school graduates.

The Residency Recruitment Committee is composed of a core group of faculty with varied interests and backgrounds and it also includes our chief residents. The selection process takes into account a wide range of factors (core grades, recommendation letters, candidates’ established track record of commitment to other pursuits) but there is no formula used to select applicants for interviews.

We offer the following tracks:

Although the number of residents admitted to each track varies slightly from year to year, there are approximately twice as many categorical positions at this time.
