The Department of Anesthesiology offers an advanced elective for fourth year medical students who wish to do a 4-week rotation in anesthesiology. This course is by permission only, and intended for students who wish to enter a career in anesthesiology or other fields where knowledge of airway management and perioperative medicine is essential. Students will be exposed to both basic and subspecialty anesthesia topics during there time with us. In addition to working in the operating rooms, students will have regularly scheduled lectures and procedural workshops in the Clinical Skills Education and Assessment center. Non-OSU students should apply for an away rotation through the AAMC VSAS system.
Four-week rotations in Anesthesia Pain Management and Cardiothoracic ICU are also available.
