Connected, Comprehensive & Accomplished

For over a century, our department has contributed to the art and science of anesthesiology. Our close collaboration with virtually all Keck School departments gives our initiatives extensive range and influence. Learners work with expert providers on highly acute, complex cases in diverse patients. We have rich research partnerships and lead the way in improving perioperative care.

From the Chair

With a large, diverse anesthesia department, our patients get comprehensive care led by faculty with top-notch skills, and our learners get broad clinical exposure that empowers them as professionals.
