Post Graduate Program
The Anesthesia Residency Program at Memorial University is a five year training program whose elements are based upon the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada Competency By Design (CBD) anesthesia program curriculum.
Our program is best characterized as a small program that considers its sense of community, opportunities for sound clinical experience beginning early in residency and its simulation program as its strongest assets. Resident training is intended to fulfill the career aspirations of the individual resident, whether as an academic pursuing a fellowship or as a community anesthesiologist. There are faculty members throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the province of New Brunswick, allowing for clinical exposure that encompasses both rural community and tertiary care subspecialty experience. Our faculty are very supportive of residency education.
The Discipline of Anesthesia facilitates the Undergraduate core clerkship integrated anesthesia rotation. This three day experience is a component of the Faculty of Medicine's Phase 4, year 3, Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME) program at Memorial University.
In addition, through communication with Memorial University’s UGME office, the Discipline of Anesthesia coordinates and oversees anesthesia elective/selective rotations. These rotations are typically 2 weeks in duration and take place at the Health Sciences Center, St. Clare's Mercy Hospital, or Janeway Children's Health Centre. Acceptance of these requests depends on site and preceptor availabilities.
