The Brigham and Women's Hospital Department of Anesthesiology offers a unique and vigorous educational curriculum for the residents. According to the redesigned American Board of Anesthesiologists basic and advanced content outline, we administer this content in lecture format, problem-based learning discussions, and other methods of learning every Wednesday between 9am - 12pm (9am-1pm twice a month). This curriculum includes time for teaching of clinical topics, as well as wellness, humanism, health care disparities, diversity, equity and inclusion. During this time, participating residents have no clinical obligations and all pagers are off. Since the ABA basic and advanced content outline are now separated, junior residents alternate with senior classes every week.

Residency Program

Didactic sessions are held by faculty who have their clinical focus in the specific area discussed. Such faculty expertise ensures not only comprehensive and in-depth presentation of the material but also emphasizes its application within the clinical context. Sessions are recorded so that the residents can view them at any time.

In addition, we offer mock oral board sessions with experienced faculty. Simulator based learning is also part of the curriculum.
