Highlights of The Program

The Anesthesiology Training Program at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is a unique one. We are a comfortably sized categorical residency-training program (40 residents total, 10 residents per PGY class) with a surplus of teaching cases in three major teaching hospitals.

Resident Didactics and Conference

  • PGY level based morning conference (CA-0/1 and CA-2/3) every weekday from 6:30-7:00 AM
  • Monthly POCUS workshops

Mind Body Medicine Program

At the start of CA-1 year, residents embark on a weekend-long retreat on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland, where they learn to practice meditation and mindfulness, focusing on relationship building, self-awareness, and stress reduction. Two faculty facilitators and each resident cohort meet monthly during protected non-clinical time for the remainder of the 3 year residency.
