Anesthesia Student Rotation


Course description

The Externship in Clinical Anesthesiology (ANES 7181) course is designed to expose 3rd and 4th year medical students to anesthesia care of patients in the operating room setting. Each student will be paired each week with either an anesthesia resident or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and will assist them as needed with their patient’s anesthesia needs. The student will become familiar with the anesthesiology medications used in the operating room as well as reading the “Essential Anesthesia” book which will be loaned to each student. By the end of the rotation, it is hopeful that the medical student will have a brief and better understanding of the physiology and pharmacology that is involved in anesthesiology along with everyday patient care in the operating room.
