IAA is affiliated with the UCONN School of Medicine and serves as primary training locations for the UCONN Anesthesia Residency Program. There is a long tradition of IAA providing award-winning resident education, with many IAA members themselves training at this prestigious program. We are proud to staff the residents’ primary clinical sites of Hartford Hospital, UCONN Health, and Connecticut Children’s. Serving as the primary educators to the UCONN Anesthesia residents is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding aspects of a career with IAA.
The University of Connecticut School of Medicine Anesthesiology Residency Program offers the resources of a university-sponsored residency combined with the clinical variety and volume of cases available at our large affiliated teaching hospitals.
Private practitioners with specialty training, many years of experience in clinical anesthesiology, and a commitment to education comprise the majority of the faculty. Access to research staff and support at the university rounds out the experience.
Our focus is directed toward comprehensive training that molds a well-rounded perioperative physician and consultant in anesthesiology. This is accomplished by a three-pronged approach to training that strives for clinical excellence, academic achievement, and scholarly activity. This basic philosophy prepares our residents for careers in either academic medicine or private practice.
Our residents also learn about the economics of anesthesiology and the importance of participating in our local and national professional organizations. We take pride in providing rotations and assignments based on educational value rather than manpower needs. We have high expectations of our residents; however, we acknowledge that differences in learning styles exist and will provide each resident with the personal attention that he or she needs in order to succeed.
We welcome your interest in our residency program, and look forward to hearing from you soon.
