Welcome to the University of Minnesota Medical School
Department of Anesthesiology

We have a long and rich history dating back to 1925. As a blended anesthesiology department, we leverage the intellectual and educational assets of both academic and private-practice anesthesiologists.

Our department cultivates a culture of inquiry, where best medical practices are determined through clinical and scientific methods as well as translational investigation.
