New anesthesia program pros and cons, please? There's a new anesthesia residency, only two years old, currently with up to CA-2 year. My question is what are the pros and cons of a program like this? It's a university program, great location, by a school that's established and with great programs in other specialties. The PD was a PD for another program elsewhere for 25 years, and the faculty I met during interview seemed both impressive and excited about teaching, plus the hospitals on the network have tons of cases of all kinds to meet numbers. However, I'm sure there are cons to this kind of baby program and was wondering what they could be. If anyone could chime in, it'd be greatly appreciated.
