Best Anesthesia Programs

Taken from a 2003 post on studentdoctors.net:

Here is a previous post from a year ago that may give you an idea regarding the so-called “best anesthesia programs”:

“Academic anesthesiologists I have spoken to generally seem to stratify the outstanding programs into 3 tiers…

1) Best of the best: JHU, MGH, UCSF

2) Considered to be Elite programs: Alabama, Brigham, Columbia, Duke, Mayo, Michigan, Penn, Stanford, Wake Forest, U. Washington

3) Other excellent academic programs: Beth Israel, Cornell, Dartmouth, MC Wisconsin, Mt. Sinai, Northwestern, Penn State, UC Irvine, UCLA, UCSD, U. Chicago, U. Colorado, U. Florida, U. Iowa, UNC Chapel Hill, U. Pittsburgh, U. Rochester, U. Texas Galveston, Utah, UVA, Vanderbilt, Wash U, Yale

I think trying to rank the excellent programs from 1-50 is fruitless. If you apply yourself at any of the above programs, you will have great fellowship and job opportunities.”

People obviously have their opinions and may disagree with this stratification, but I think that it is pretty good.

I tend to agree as well…but maybe I’m biased.  🙂

  1. Another post taken directly from studentdoctor.net July 2010:

    I ranked UCSD above all of the “top programs” mentioned above except MGH. If I were to do it again I would rank it #1. I [UCSD] don’t think we’re big enough to make anyone’s “Academic Top 5 Powerhouses” list, but I think we’re generally considered among the stronger programs nationally and we have many famous names including Benumof, Drummond, and Kaplan (and we’re small enough that you can be on a first name basis and play golf with them on weekends). As for the clinical training itself, I think there is little room for improvement in most areas. Old-fashioned resident autonomy is very important here. This, and the location, has made this program quite competitive (<100 interviews granted and we tend to go only about 1/3 down the rank list in the match).
