A Welcome Letter from our Program Director
The Anesthesiology residency program at Dignity Health Saint Joseph’s Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited four-year post-graduate training program. Our goals are to provide our residents with superior training that will enable them to offer top-notch, professional, evidence-based care to their patients.
The program not only nurtures academic growth but also teaches residents on principles of communication, professionalism, patient safety, and empathy to help them become well-rounded physicians.
The basic and clinical lecture series, clinical conferences, and other educational activities are structured to strike a balance between theoretic and practical knowledge. We aim to provide our residents with a wealth of clinical anesthesiology and its subspecialties, solidifying their foundation to being successful upon graduation.
You will be surrounded by outstanding faculty with exceptional clinical skills and a strong commitment to resident education. Our faculties are always available to provide residents with mentorship and guide them as needed through their residency at this institution.
Our department is highly involved in research activities. We encourage our residents to be involved in research projects, with faculty mentorship to foster academic growth, explore an interest in research opportunities, and complete resident’s dissertation projects.
We warmly welcome you to our institution and sincerely appreciate your interest in our program.
Adrian Elliott, MD
Residency Program Director, Anesthesiology
