The Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) Program draws its faculty from Mayo Clinic's clinical, scientific and technical staffs. Faculty members are chosen for their commitment to teaching as well as clinical practice and research. Many have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields.
Instructors from Winona State University and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse teach physiology and anatomy. Instructors from Winona State University and the nurse anesthesia core faculty team co-teach the DNAP first-year distance education ''essentials'' courses.
Students have access to research, clinical and didactic faculty throughout the program and have the opportunity to learn directly from some of today's best anesthesiology and nurse anesthesia practitioners and educators.
The faculty direct and guide research, didactic and clinical learning in an integrated system of practice and education. All anesthetics are administered under the direction of Mayo Clinic staff anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists.
