Thank you for your interest in the Mary Washington Healthcare Residency in Anesthesiology. We are looking forward to welcoming our inaugural class of 6 residents to a categorical residency starting in July of 2025.

The anesthesiology residency is the fourth residency to be approved at Mary Washington Healthcare. Interns during the clinical base year will work alongside residents in surgery, internal medicine, and family medicine, as well as interns in the transitional year program. Operating room anesthesiology rotations will begin in the first year, in addition to ICU, ER, surgical, internal medicine, and elective rotations.

The anesthesiology faculty understands the importance of providing a well-rounded clinical experience. Equally important is a learning environment and didactic program tailored to inform your clinical skills as you care for patients in the perioperative setting. We have designed a didactic, simulation, and wellness program that will begin during the clinical base year and continue through your residency. Our program is designed to prepare you for early success in negotiating the tiered anesthesiology board certification exams.

Residents will spend most of their time at Mary Washington Hospital, a 471-bed Level II trauma center with a wide range of surgical services including cardiac, thoracic, orthopedic and general surgery. Residents will also rotate at our highly rated ambulatory surgery center on the Mary Washington Hospital campus and at nearby Stafford Hospital to round out the ambulatory anesthesia experience with an emphasis on pediatrics and regional anesthesia. Mary Washington Healthcare has a busy obstetric service with approximately 2900 deliveries each year. Residents will gain significant experience in the anesthetic care of mothers during routine and complicated deliveries.

Thank you again for considering our program. We look forward to meeting prospective residents and sharing our program for an excellent clinical experience and learning environment to ensure the success of our future professional colleagues in anesthesiology.
