The anesthesia residency at the University of Iowa is a four-year ACGME-accredited program, incorporating direct patient care into a learning environment with strong didactics. Our approach prepares graduates to enter their choice of private practice, academic practice, or fellowship.

All major anesthesia fellowships are represented at the University of Iowa, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • Pediatrics
  • Cardiac
  • Critical care
  • Regional anesthesia and acute pain management

Every element of your residency experience–didactics, clinical training, research and scholarly activity, and social or recreational opportunities–is designed to provide you with a foundation of excellence that will serve you well throughout your career.

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the University of Iowa Department of Anesthesia.
