Education

Critical Care Anesthesia Curriculum

Our fellows, residents, and medical students learn the fundamentals of Critical Care Medicine with abundant clinical experience in direct patient management.  In addition, didactic training is provided by our internationally acclaimed faculty via bedside teaching rounds, daily critical care lectures and conferences, monthly journal clubs, as well as a number of special lectures provided throughout the year by invited speakers.

UC San Diego Anesthesiology Residents are expected to demonstrate the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to meet the requirements of the core competencies listed in the Goals and Objectives.  Residents are educated on the core competencies through exposure at daily Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) attending rounds, daily didactic lectures, and X-ray rounds.
