Introduction to the Anesthesiology Department at the University of Minnesota

The Department of Anesthesiology follows the model of a blended anesthesiology department, leveraging the intellectual and educational assets of both academic and private-practice anesthesiologists. We follow a standard for the professional delivery of compassionate patient care, which emphasizes patient safety and operational efficiency. Our department cultivates a culture of inquiry, where best medical practices are determined through clinical and scientific methods as well as translational investigation.
