The Department of Anesthesiology & Critical Care at the University of Pennsylvania has a long-standing history of strength in clinical anesthesia and anesthesiology research. However, the department is also very interested in expanding its breadth of expertise in areas related to anesthesiology. Our residents and faculty are involved in many of these new initiatives
One such initiative is in Global Health. We have had residents and faculty travel to Rwanda, Haiti, China and Vietnam in order to provide anesthetic care and management. These travels have been in the context of training opportunities, medical relief missions and building capacity within these countries.
