Department and Faculty

Mayo Clinic critical care anesthesiology faculty and trainees during rounds

The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Mayo Clinic is a highly integrated, collaborative group of adult and pediatric anesthesiologists, who are committed to providing the best possible care to adult and pediatric patients requiring anesthesia and intensive care. Members of the department also conduct basic and clinical research and teach postgraduate and continuing education programs.

Mayo Clinic anesthesiologists supervise many critical care cases each year. This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the anesthetic management of patients of all ages.

The field of anesthesia changes continually with the introduction of new drugs, equipment and surgical and radiological interventions. Department members are organized into subspecialty groups, each focusing on a segment of anesthesiology. Their expertise is a resource for everyone, enabling the department to stay at the forefront of the specialty.

Faculty

In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. You have direct access to the anesthesiology faculty at Mayo Clinic throughout your training in the Critical Care Anesthesiology Fellowship.

Advisers and mentors

You are assigned a dedicated faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the program to review their progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Rochester, Minnesota, and the Mayo Clinic system.

Visiting professors

Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
