The Department of Anesthesiology's mission is threefold:

  • achieving excellence in providing patient care
  • teaching medical students, residents and fellows
  • conducting research

Delivery of anesthesia for adults and children at six different institutions sets the standard of care in southeastern Wisconsin.  This also creates an educational environment for housestaff and medical students that utilizes a variety of learning activities.  Core training is based on one-on-one instruction with faculty and guided hands-on experience.  The didactic educational program of the department consists of case discussions, lectures, journal clubs, and visiting professorships.    Read more
