Our ACGME-accredited residency program provides in-depth and hands-on learning opportunities in both clinical and research areas. Residents and fellows spend over half of their time at UF Health Shands Hospital, a teaching, not-for-profit, 830-bed quaternary care hospital with over 100 ICU beds. They also train at the Malcom Randall VA Medical Center, the UF Health Children’s Surgical Center, and the UF Health Florida Surgical Center.

New intern orientation


Faculty members specialize in a number of anesthesiology subspecialties according to their fellowship training and individual interests to provide the best talent and skills in the care of our patients. We serve the anesthesiology, pain, and critical care medicine needs for patients admitted to UF Health Shands Hospital and all of its subsidiary facilities. UF Health Shands Hospital has been recognized as one of the best hospitals in Florida.
