About the Program

We are very proud of our residency program, our department, our university, and our community. We believe that we have found a hidden gem in Iowa City, where unsurpassed clinical training is offered in an ideal setting surrounded by warm and friendly people. We are extremely grateful to work and train others in such an environment.

We invite you to consider the advantages of a program with:

  • A renowned faculty who inspire an intellectually stimulating environment and through their connections help open doors to the most competitive fellowships
  • A supportive and responsive learning atmosphere that promotes the development of exceptional clinical skills and judgment in anesthesia

153 individuals graduated from our program between 2006 and 2017 (and have had time to take both written and oral exams). Our ABA certification rate is greater than 97%!

In the last 11 years, greater than 40% of our graduates entered fellowships (pain, regional, cardiothoracic, critical care, and pediatric anesthesia), either at Iowa or at other great programs across the country.

Graduates in the last 10 years practice in 17 different states, with about 60% in the Midwest. They enter academic practice, fellowships, private practice, or military service.
