Department of Anesthesiology
The TTUHSC Department of Anesthesiology offers a four-year anesthesiology residency
program. The first year is committed to a rotating internship. The next three years,
CA-1 through CA-3, are devoted to the practice of clinical anesthesia.
Each anesthesia resident rotates on subspecialty services, including surgical critical
care, cardiothoracic, obstetrical, pain management, pediatric, regional and neuro-anesthesia.
We are home to The International Pain Center, one of the premier pain management programs
in the country.
TTUHSC is a Level 1 trauma and burn center which affords our residents the opportunity
to manage a wide range of different case scenarios. High-risk obstetric anesthesia
care is another strength of the program.
Resident s’ clinical experiences are enhanced by the use of multi-disciplinary high
fidelity simulation. Texas Tech’s new state-of-the art simulation center is planned
to be finished in 2010.
We pride ourselves on a very personable residency and believe we provide one of the
best environments to learn in.
