    Resident Education Changes in Anesthesiology
    In 2006, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) approved a new core anesthesiology curriculum with which programs must comply by July 2008. Notable changes in curriculum requirements include an increase from two to four months of critical care medicine and a change in pain medicine from one month of chronic pain clinic exposure to three months of pain medicine — one in chronic pain, one in acute pain and one in regional anesthesiology. Further, the curriculum includes a month-long new requirement in preoperative assessment and additional new months in cardiac anesthesiology, neurosurgical anesthesiology, obstetric anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology.

    They'll probably need more people. What a wonderful reason to have AA's licensed in all states!

    UNM may not be on anyones radar as a top tier program but I did more than all of this during my residency.

    SICU 4 months
    MICU 1
    PICU 1
    NICU 1
    Trauma (lots of ICU including Burn unit) 2
    Pain 6
    This includes my intern year. Everyone should look at the amount of CCM and pain they get from their programs. If they don't fill the bill, go elsewhere.

    I chose to do that much pain. I also did 1 month of research. My ICU knowledge is pretty much gone now but the pain knowledge is still there for the most part. I may just be behind in some of the newer stuff. But it definitely comes in handy with regards to in house pain issues.
