Our Training Programs

The Stanford Anesthesiology Residency Program offers several different training opportunities:

  • 12 Categorical Positions (Program #1820040C0)
  • 15 Advanced Positions (Program #182004A0)
  • 3 Combined Internal Medicine/Anesthesiology Positions (Program #1820742C0)
  • 2 Combined Pediatrics/Anesthesiology Positions (Program #1820726C0)

If you are applying to one of our combined training programs you will need to apply directly in ERAS to the combined program. (If you are interested in one of the categorical programs, too, you will also need to apply through ERAS to the categorical program of your choice.)  For those candidates interviewing for a combined position, you will interview in both programs over a period of two days.
