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.

Affiliated Internships

The Stanford Anesthesiology Program also offers affiliated PGY1 (intern) positions in the area. You must apply separately through ERAS to each of these internships.  Through NRMP, you will have the ability to link the internship with our Advanced Program.

Stanford Anesthesiology Integrated Internship in General Surgery

We have partnered with Stanford General Surgery to offer an affiliated PGY1 experience designed to have interns:

  • learn about surgical diseases and develop knowledge and experience in the evaluation and management of surgical patients and their medical conditions
  •  refine procedural skills for the ward, ICU, and OR
  • become comfortable working in the Stanford adult and pediatric hospitals including the electronic medical record to facilitate the transition to the CA1 year
  • work with residents and faculty in surgery and other specialties that the intern will later work with in the OR and other settings like the ICU
  • interact with other Stanford Anesthesiology interns (for example, those doing the medicine-based internship or the pediatrics internship before starting the anesthesiology residency) and the Stanford Anesthesiology department

Interviews are not required to match to this affiliated internship. The General Surgery Prelim/Anesthesiology NRMP program code is 1820440P3. If you have questions regarding this internship, please contact them directly:
