We believe an optimal educational program depends on a close faculty-resident relationship and a curriculum that provides a diverse clinical exposure and fosters a progression in resident responsibility and independence.

Resident learning how to manage and airwayThe University of Florida residency curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure this. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for 22 residents per clinical anesthesia year, and we currently have 78 residents from the PGY-1 – PGY-4 level.

We offer 20 categorical positions for residents to match into their PGY-1 year and 2 advanced positions for those matching to begin in their PGY-2 year.

Anesthesia Training Occurs:

  • the two main operating suites in UF Health Shands Hospital & the UF Health Shands Cancer Center
  • the 250 bed Malcom A. Randall North Florida/South Georgia VA Medical Center
  • the outpatient Children’s Surgical Center
  • the Florida Surgical Center for adult out-patient surgery


There are 13 four-week rotations each year.

Curriculum development is guided by the Anesthesia Housestaff Advisory committee which acts by facilitating feedback from residents on curriculum issues and program direction. Its members include residents and faculty. Curriculum changes are based on the program’s educational goals and guidelines set by ACGME.
