Department and Faculty
The Department of Anesthesiology at Mayo Clinic is a highly integrated, collaborative group of anesthesiologists. Members of the department also conduct basic and clinical research and teach postgraduate and continuing education programs.
Anesthesiologists at Mayo Clinic in Arizona supervise more than 10,000 cases requiring anesthesia yearly, assisted by skilled nurse anesthetists and state-of-the-art equipment. This large number of cases, integrated with ongoing research and education, results in wide-ranging expertise in the anesthetic management of patients.
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.
We have nine board-certified pain medicine physicians in our Pain Medicine subspecialty group. Pain Medicine fellows always work under the direct supervision of one of the pain medicine faculty members.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge and are recognized leaders in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals throughout your training.
You will be assigned a faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Your adviser also will serve as a contact point, introducing you and your family to the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. You will be encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities.
