Welcome from Our Chief Residents


Welcome to the Rush University Department of Anesthesiology website! We are excited that you are interested in our program and would like to share with you what makes Rush Anesthesia an outstanding place to train.

The clinical training you will receive at Rush will prepare you to become astute clinicians and leaders in the field of anesthesia. The CA-0 year is tailored to provide a strong and comprehensive foundation to transition to clinical anesthesia with rotations in Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Surgery, and ICU. The progression from CA-1 to CA-3 year provides countless opportunities for complex patients and cases in a learning environment with attendings who are committed to teaching and fostering growth.

Training at Rush allows you to experience the wonderful city of Chicago! From enjoying the food scene at a variety of delicious restaurants to biking on Lakeshore trail or strolling along the Riverwalk, Chicago offers one of the best urban living experiences in the country with endless activities right outside your door.

Please reach out to us if you have any additional questions about the program and living in Chicago. We are excited to meet you this interview season!
