Why Train at BWH?
MD, PhD (c/o 2022)
“I’ve found amazing research mentors at the Brigham. Before residency, I conducted research at Caltech to design new drugs and at NASA to develop devices for the International Space Station.🪐👩🏻🚀🛰
In residency, I’ve been able to continue my research with several mentors in the anesthesia department. With Dr. Connor, I developed a hands-free control system for anesthesia monitors. Working with Dr. Muehlschlegel, I presented my research at a national conference as a first year resident. I am so grateful for all their support!”

We believe that a strong introduction to the practice of Anesthesiology is critical to our residents’ early success and enjoyment of our specialty. To this end, we have created what we believe is one of the most comprehensive, immersive and enjoyable CA-1 Orientation programs in the country.
The first part of Tutorial is a comprehensive week-long program of introductory lectures, hands-on workshops, and interactive teaching sessions.
Special hands-on workshops on airway management, IV placement, and line placement, taught by dedicated staff anesthesiologists and selected CA-3 residents.
This week also serves as a critical bonding experience and our CA1 residents value getting to know their fellow classmates in a fun, educational and enjoyable atmosphere.
Emergency Airway workshop held at STRATUS, our simulation center, led by anesthesia and surgical experts.

"I just started a regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine fellowship at NYPH-Weill Cornell and I’m already so thankful for my amazing experience training at BWH. Not only did Brigham prepare me with the knowledge and clinical skills for fellowship and beyond, but more importantly, it taught me how to emulate respect for and collaboration with my fellow clinicians and healthcare providers while also giving me the confidence to do my best for patients. My time at Brigham was very special because of the amazing people I got to work alongside of and learn from.”

“I completed my residency training at UW in Seattle and came to the Brigham for cardiothoracic fellowship. I chose the Brigham because it is clearly a place where education, clinical training and innovation are valued and prioritized. It’s been a great experience learning from some of the leaders in echocardiography and be part of this excellent team.”
