We are delighted to celebrate and honor our department’s talented, skilled, and dedicated group of nurse anesthetists during National CRNA Week, January 20-26.
When it came time to choose residency training in anesthesiology, Dr. Bradley knew that at UCLA she would have the opportunity to experience challenging cases as early as her CA-1 year. In addition, she found it uplifting that the residents and faculty were great, fun, and caring individuals who always put patient care first.
“On my interview, I could tell that UCLA would be an environment that would help me grow as a clinical anesthesiologist with the variety and complexity of cases, and would also support my research interests,” she says. “But I ultimately chose to come to UCLA because of the fun, supportive, collaborative environment that I witnessed on the interview day. Now that I am a resident, my colleagues make me excited to wake up every morning and go to work.”
Congratulations to Nirav Kamdar, MD, MPP, MBA, Ari Huverserian, MD, Aviva Regev, MD, MBA, and Lauren Beck, MD, for their publication, “Telemedicine for Anesthesiologists: Perioperative Evaluation and Beyond”. The article, which appears in the October issue of ASA Monitor, provides a comprehensive look at the state of telemedicine in anesthesiology.
Dr. Rice’s inspiration to pursue medicine began with his fascination at studying how all the pieces of the human body fit together to create a living, breathing, creative, and intelligent being. In medicine, he found the opportunity to explore that interest and develop the gifts to realign those pieces when they fall out of place.
As another academic year has come to a close and a new one begins, now is a perfect time to reflect on the progress of our UCLA Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, and consider where we are going from here
