Clinical Anesthesia Year 2

Year 2 expands on the core training of year 1 with increasing complexity and responsibilities. This year not only challenges the resident in the increasing difficulty of cases but allows for increasing independence and broadens the focus of anesthesia training to multiple medical facilities in Seattle.

  • Neurosurgery x 1 month
  • Cardiothoracic Surgery x 1 month
  • Obstetrical Anesthesia x 1 month
    • Residents rotate at Swedish Medical Center which provides high risk and large volumes of deliveries per year. (0.3 miles from Virginia Mason)
  • Pediatric Surgery x 2 months
  • Neuro ICU x 1 month
    • Residents rotate at Harborview Medical Center (0.5 miles), a level one trauma center located in downtown Seattle that services Alaska, Montana, Idaho and Washington. 
  • Trauma ICU x 1 month at Harborview Medical Center 

For the remainder of the year, residents focus on more complex and challenging opportunities ranging from major vascular and thoracic surgery to complex general surgical cases.
