The department of Anesthesiology is deeply committed to reaching out to the community, both locally and globally. Tangible local outreach endeavors include transport programs (Nonatal Critical Care Transport, Adult Critical Care Transport) that were developed to permit transportation of critically patients from institutions with inadequate facilities to Stanford hospitals for state of the art care. Additionally, a medical acupuncture division has been developed to provide alternative, yet effective therapies to patients with chronic pain and other conditions.

On a global level, many faculty have participated in medical volunteer efforts in disadvantaged countries of the world.

Faculty and residents have also been involved in helping improve the health and well-being of endangered and exotic animal species.
