Dear Future Residents and Colleagues,
Welcome to the UCLA Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine! We believe our comprehensive program provides excellent clinical, research, and, eventually, career opportunities.
At UCLA, you will have the opportunity to care for very complex patients alongside world-renowned physicians from all specialties. Our patient population includes those with complex congenital heart disease, critical polytrauma, high-risk obstetric findings, and end-organ failure necessitating organ transplantation. It is no surprise that Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center consistently ranks in the top ten on U.S. News and World Report's "Best Hospitals Honor Roll." To provide the most inclusive experience, our residents rotate at several hospitals in the greater Los Angeles area. Our clinical experience even extends internationally, as we send residents on international electives each year.
We are supported by our outstanding faculty, many of whom are leaders within our field. They include recipients of coveted research grants and awards, high-level hospital administrators, and current and past leaders in the California Society of Anesthesiologists, American Society of Anesthesiologists, and American Board of Anesthesiology. Consequently, our residents benefit tremendously from such esteemed company - winning their own research awards, becoming involved with state and national societies, and participating in innovative hospital-wide initiatives.
When not in the operating room, our residents enjoy beautiful Southern California alongside their friends, families and colleagues. Whether enjoying an outdoor movie, relaxing on the beach, dining at Michelin star restaurants, or playing intramural softball with their surgical colleagues, our residents have endless opportunities to maintain a sense of well-being.
We hope you consider joining our UCLA Anesthesiology family here in Los Angeles!
