The UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Management Residency Program aims to develop a diverse group of residents into respected consultants and board certified anesthesiologists, who will go on to continue their training in an anesthesiology subspecialty, develop into an academician, or care for patients in private practice through the guidance and mentorship of our academic faculty. We strive for excellence in clinical care, lifelong learning through scholarly activity and research, quality improvement and patient safety initiatives, medical education and simulation, global health initiatives, and personal wellness and resilience.

Our diverse and accomplished faculty of nearly 200 spans several well-respected hospitals to offer the breadth and depth of anesthesia training as represented by all the ACGME-accredited fellowship programs and then some! Our clinical education combined with a thoughtful didactic curriculum, state-of-the art simulation training, and longitudinal experiences in Point-of-Care-Ultrasound (POCUS), Quality Improvement, and Research allows for the development of the next generation of anesthesiology leaders.

Our expansive, world-renowned health system is in one of the largest and fastest-growing cities in the United States that offers a reasonable cost and quality of living, an engaging environment for any stage of life, and the hospitality of the south. Two major, international airports make travel to and from Dallas incredibly easy and convenient!

We hope that you enjoy your visit, whether virtual or in person. We look forward to sharing our pride in the Department and Residency Program with you!
