The three main paths for doctors and medical students who want to study anesthesia at Stanford are residency, fellowships, and clerkships.
The residency is set up so that when residents graduate, they are ready to practice independently. Alumni surveys consistently tell us that the program achieves this goal: According to the surveys, graduates feel well prepared to manage any case they encounter, no matter how complex or challenging.
For physicians who have graduated from a residency program, Stanford’s Anesthesia Department offers fellowships in many specialties, including different areas of research, various clinical specialties, global health, medical education, management of perioperative services.
There is a wide range of clinical clerkships available at Stanford University and its affiliated hospitals. Many are open to both Stanford students and visiting medical students.
