The BWH Anesthesia residency program has the benefit of our on-campus STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation. During structured academic time, the residents are exposed to both routine intra-operative problems as well as the low-frequency high acuity events they might never see in clinical training or practice. The tenets of Crisis Resource Management are taught in the Simulation Lab, the Skills Lab, and the classroom by faculty anesthesiologists who have dual training in the art and science of medical simulation.
Besides simulator training in the STRATUS Center, residents are also offered workshops in airway management, ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and line placement among others. ACLS training is also provided multiple times throughout the year.
