I want to introduce a (hopefully) soon-to-be approved ACGME Anesthesia residency program based at Rhode Island Hospital and affiliated with the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. During out recent site visit, we received permission to start the "advertisement" process and are planning to interview during this upcoming match cycle. Our program will be based out of Rhode Island Hospital, a busy level 1 trauma center. Case complexity and diversity are a highlight of our department. Residents will also spend time at our community hospital affiliates. Obstetrics is not currently performed at our primary sites, thus that training will be obtained at a Boston teaching hospital. Though we have not formally had our own training program, our faculty have been training anesthesia residents from Boston area hospitals for several decades - many of them subsequently joining our staff after training. I am happy to answer your questions about our program and will update you about the progress of our approval in the coming weeks.
