Thank you for your interest in the Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine Residency Program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Our residency class will include 21 residents in each of the four years training. All residency positions are categorical positions.
UAB’s residency is a varied educational experience focused on hands-on learning. The core is a diverse didactic curriculum featuring classroom lectures, simulation, Q&A sessions, and case-based discussion along with bedside teaching. Residents are given progressive autonomy. They begin making patient-care choices early on in their training while guided by faculty members. With increasing experience and knowledge, they are given increasing responsibility. This, along with the extensive and diverse caseload provided for our residents, is designed to guide them into creating their own operational methodology for approaching each patient individually. This methodology will allow residents to evaluate each patient and their unique circumstances and devise a targeted plan of care. Embedded within the core training common to all residents are a variety of additional opportunities that allow each resident to reach their own individualized goals. The confidence born of this training allows our graduates to operate effectively in any professional environment that they choose: providing excellent patient care, leading health care teams, or serving in large-scale health care administration.
