Shauna Wrazido in basic skills training

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.

The University of Florida anesthesiology residency curriculum has been carefully designed to meet these goals. Our program is approved by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for 22 residents for the PGY1 year and 25 residents for the PGY2, PGY3, and PGY4 years. We currently have 95 residents from the PGY-1 – PGY-4 level.

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

There are 13 four-week rotations each year.

The curriculum is based on ACGME requirements and program aims, and stays current with input from the Program Evaluation Committee and the resident-led Education Committee.
