Description
The Department of Anesthesiology offers a four-week elective for a third or fourth year student
who has completed both Medicine and Surgery Clerkships. This comprehensive elective
introduces the student to preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management and
postoperative routine and critical care. Emphasis is placed on the scientific foundations of
anesthesia, including organ-system pathophysiology, autonomic and anesthetic pharmacology,
and hemodynamic monitoring. Morning case conferences and afternoon topical lectures will
supplement operating room patient care responsibilities. In the operating room, there is a one-
to-one teaching by both anesthesia residents and faculty. The student may elect to do a one
week rotation in a specialty field of anesthesia, e.g. obstetrics, neurosurgery, cardiothoracic or
pediatrics. On-call responsibilities at Bellevue Hospital will be one evening per week during
which time the student will work with the Bellevue Team Captain.
