Mission:
The KHN Anesthesiology Residency Program offers an excellent continuing education opportunity. Our training program offers a grand beginning for a career in anesthesiology and ensures the enhancement of our residents' ultimate career goals. We are working together for a single purpose: to provide the best possible peri-operative care for our community by educating residents and medical students in the specialty of anesthesiology. We offer clinical training in the fields of general, cardiothoracic, obstetric, neurosurgical, and pediatric anesthesiology. Residents also receive training in acute and chronic pain management and critical care. Hands-on clinical training is augmented by an intensive didactic program, which includes group discussion, faculty lectures, resident lectures, grand rounds, quality assurance preparation, and journal club. All of these didactic and clinical activities are designed to enable our residents to progress safely and comfortably through different stages of residency with the ultimate goal of obtaining board certification. In addition, residents are encouraged to pursue clinical research, and resources are provided to support this mission.
