Program Director's Message
Thank you for your interest in the Anesthesiology Residency Program at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. It is my privilege to invite prospective residents to consider joining us for your residency experience. We offer a broad-based residency program, encompassing the entire spectrum of anesthesiology specialties, including pediatrics, cardiovascular, cardiothoracic, OB, neurosurgery, critical care, and pain management.
Our faculty consists of excellent anesthesiologists dedicated to providing you with superior training. Through our partnerships with Advocate Christ Hospital, Hines Veterans Administration Hospital and Lurie Children’s Hospital, you will have access to an array of outstanding faculty-mentors, all of whom will make a significant contribution to your postgraduate education.
You will also have the opportunity to do research during your residency — Each resident is required to present at the annual Midwest Anesthesia Resident Conference. We also offer an excellent support staff to foster residents’ research efforts.
The Anesthesiology Residency Program provides you with top-notch skills and experience, no matter what path you choose to take after your residency is complete. Over the past six years, half of our graduates have gone into private practice, and half into additional fellowship and academic training programs.
Your residency here at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center will be a well-rounded and focused experience in Anesthesiology which will prepare you for your future endeavors. Along with the great city of Chicago as your home, you will not be disappointed with your experience here.
