The neuroanesthesia rotation is a four week period where a resident is exposed to neurological and neurosurgical pathology with an opportunity to provide anesthesia for patients for the surgical treatment of this pathology. The resident is expected to understand the patient’s pathology, the planned intervention and to synthesize a plan for the anesthetic management of this patient. The resident is also expected to understand how to use pharmacology and other means to manipulate the patient’s neurophysiology. The resident should also understand how the collaboration of surgeon and anesthesiologist can optimize patient outcome.
Neuroanesthesia track is available as an elective track. CA-3s who are fulfilling the required rotation (outside the elective track) have the same goals and objectives but on a shorter time frame.
