The Goal of the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Anesthesiology Residency Program is to facilitate learners during four years residency to cultivate their clinical and technical skills to the highest capability to be able to practice anesthesiology as outlined
by the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA).
We accomplish this by providing an environment that promotes the acquisition of clinical knowledge, procedural skills, clinical judgment, and attitudes essential to the practice of anesthesiology. We provide an in-depth didactic program, a wide variety
of online learning opportunities, simulation based learning, excellent clinical experiences and mentorship.
We encourage and foster an environment for our residents to work effectively as members of an interprofessional healthcare team and provide an environment that is conducive to accomplish this aim.
Overview of the Program
The Anesthesiology Residency Program at DMC, Wayne State University comprises a four-year educational experience approved by the American Board of Anesthesiology. This includes one year of non-anesthesia clinical training (Clinical Base Year) and three
years of clinical anesthesia training (CA-1, CA-2, and CA-3 years). Residency Program curriculum is designed to provide residents graduated clinical experience and timely feedback in all of the six General Competencies defined by the ACGME:
Detroit Medical Center provides a variety of experience to our residents with adult and pediatrics anesthetics, administered by our anesthesia providers (anesthesiologists, residents, and nurse anesthetists). On an average day, there are more clinical opportunities than there are residents.
The resources of Wayne State University and the Detroit Medical Center are available to help expand our research efforts. Our faculty are actively involved in a variety of clinical research projects. Our residents are strongly encouraged to participate in our projects, have the chance to co-author abstracts and articles, and present them at national conferences.
As part of their training, residents actively participate in daily didactic morning sessions journal clubs, research conferences, mortality and morbidity conferences, and perioperative case discussions. We encourage our residents to attend national conferences (ASA, IARS, PGA, SAMBA, SCCM), and provide them with financial allowances for that purpose if they are the presenters.
Again, thank you for your interest in our residency program.
Welcome to the DMC Anesthesiology Residency Program, located in the heart of Detroit, where cultural diversity comes together for premier medical care.
Our residency program consists of approximately 12 MD/DO residents per year and is a 4 year program, offering a transitional year with a great mix of surgical and medical training.
During your experience at the DMC, you will have a wide array of exposure to cardiothoracic, minimally invasive, ambulatory, emergency, trauma, neurosurgical, pediatric, and bariatric surgeries among many others with excellent training in intensive care, perioperative medicine, pain management, obstetric and regional anesthesia.
The residency program has a heavy emphasis on clinical training in challenging clinical scenarios in the setting of newly renovated, state-of-the-art facilities to go along with a brand new Cardiovascular Institute.
Our program provides great exposure to regional anesthesia and our didactic curriculum is efficient, effective, and ever evolving, allowing many of our residents to pursue competitive fellowships.
During your residency, you will have the opportunity to rotate through all DMC hospitals and surgical centers spread over the Detroit Metro area, giving you a diverse experience and teaching you adaptability to different environments and patient populations.
Starting off as an anesthesiology resident can be challenging, so you will have the chance to shadow and learn anesthesia safely during the final month of your intern year before gaining comfort in the OR with the fundamental skills of anesthesia. This unique transition is one our residents love.
Your second year will hone in on subspecialty training with increasingly complex cases and introduce you to intraoperative TEE while your third year allows you to enjoy the role of junior faculty, managing resident cases while also focusing on your unique career path, molding your electives and research to where your interests lie.
All the while, weekly didactics are aimed at written and oral board preparation, with the help of world renowned guest speakers, journal club meetings, and our state-of-the-art educational simulator center.
From our brilliant group of core devoted faculty to all our residents and fellows across the years, we are a close community of colleagues and friends and are very lucky to be in a fun and friendly work environment that fosters learning. Whether you enjoy Michigan's great outdoors, wineries, jazz festivals or Red Wings and Tigers games, we hope you'll find a great home in our program and here in Detroit.

The Department of Anesthesiology at the Detroit Medical Center welcomes medical school students* and students from the Masters of Science in Basic Medical Sciences (BMS) Program who are interested in participating in anesthesia research related activities. This is an excellent opportunity for students seeking more information about the practice of anesthesia and anesthesia related research.
*Medical school students can elect clinical research as their elective month
Students from the graduate BMS program can elect to use a project literature review for their course Essay Requirement: BMS 7999 - Essays in Basic Medical Science - 3 credits. Or use the research experience to obtain course credit BMS 7996 Research.
To facilitate student understanding of research processes, in particular research projects involving the physiology, pharmacology, and clinical management of anesthesia care and perioperative medicine.
Students participating in a research project will be mentored by the corresponding Principal Investigator (attending M.D. anesthesiologist) and the primary resident investigator(s) of the project. Expected duties, schedules, the period of research participation and potential coauthorship in conference presentation or published studies will dependent on the projects and efforts required. Research locations include Harper University Hospital, Hutzel Hospital, University Pain Clinic, and Detroit Receiving Hospital.
In addition to course related evaluations/credits, each medical student involved in a research project can receive a written research participation evaluation from the Department of Anesthesiology.
