Clinical Training at Jefferson

Jefferson residency training is well-rounded due to the wide variety of cases performed at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and affiliated institutions. The ENT, Orthopedics, and Neurosurgery departments at Jefferson perform some of the largest volume of cases in our region, which makes for lots of opportunities for regional and other anesthesia modalities. Additionally, residents rotate at the adjacent Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience (JHN). JHN is a free-standing neurology and neurosurgery hospital that performs a large number of craniotomies, aneurysm clippings and coilings, as well as intra-arterial chemotherapy for children with ocular tumors.

Residency Education

At Jefferson, your education is our priority. Residents get dedicated time for education due to Jefferson’s large CRNA program.  We have one of the most comprehensive didactic programs, with lectures on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and a board review session on Friday morning. In addition, we have several mock oral board sessions throughout the year. Our residents publish and present at national anesthesiology society meetings including the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology (SOAP), International Anesthesia Research Society (IARS), and the American Society for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA). 

Some of our residents and faculty choose to bring their clinical expertise abroad by volunteering to participate on mission trips. Most recently Operation Smile Honduras and Operation Smile Madagascar.

Another highlight of working at Jefferson is our location. We are situated in one of the most vibrant parts of downtown Philadelphia, blocks away from the Liberty Bell and many national historic sites. Many residents and faculty live within walking distance of Jefferson, which allow for weekly gatherings and to enjoy some of the top-notch restaurants in the area.

It is an exciting time to train at Thomas Jefferson University; we have recently been named one of the nation's best hospitals by US News report. Our anesthesiology residents receive some of the best clinical training and didactic education, and we hope that you will visit us to see for yourselves.

Current Resident Demographics

Our residents are a diverse group of talented individuals.  Although our selection process examines candidates individually in many areas of academic and nonacademic achievement, overall our residency classes have USLME and/or COMLEX scores above the national average for the specialty. Our residents are drawn from medical schools around the country and around the world.

Graduating Resident Demographics

We are proud to produce physician anesthesiologists of the highest clinical caliber who are prepared to tackle the next professional challenge regardless of what their ambitions may be. Many of our residents choose to continue training after residency with a Fellowship in a subspecialty area, others choose to work as general anesthesiologists in academic, private practice, or military settings.
