Add up to a year of research or specialized training
How this works
Programs approved for special training may offer residents an opportunity to add up to a year of research or specialized training outside of the standard 12 months of clinical base and 36 months of clinical anesthesia training.
Training may focus on the following:
- Critical care medicine
- Pain medicine
- Adult cardiothoracic anesthesiology
- Pediatric anesthesiology
Residency training programs wishing to participate must apply to the ABA for consideration prior to seeking approval from the ACGME. Programs approved and designated to serve as special training programs by the ABA must then request approval from the ACGME before final consideration by the Resident Review Committee (RRC).
