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

More than 200 individuals graduated from our program between 2006 and 2021 (and have had time to take both written and oral exams). Our ABA certification rate is greater than 97%!

Over the past 15 years, more than 40% of our graduates entered fellowships (cardiothoracic, critical care, obstetric, pain, pediatric, and regional anesthesia), either at Iowa or at other great programs across the country.

Our graduates from the past 15 years practice in 30 states; about 60% remain in the Midwest. They enter academic practice, fellowships, private practice, or military service.
