Message from the Program Director
We appreciate your interest in our program and look forward to showing you what makes us so proud of the Jackson Memorial Hospital Anesthesiology Residency Program and the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative Medicine and Pain Management.
We are one of the largest anesthesiology residency programs in the country and are situated in one of the world’s premier destinations. The surroundings in which you train are an important aspect of selecting a residency program, and Miami is a wonderful place both to live and work. Come see for yourself why patients, faculty and students from across the country and world are drawn to Miami and the Jackson Health System.
Jackson Memorial Hospital is a large, university-affiliated county hospital and is the perfect sponsor for your anesthesiology training. We are also associated with several other hospitals to broaden your training experience. Our residents perform hundreds of cases per year covering a wide range of surgical subspecialties and settings. Our graduates count themselves amongst the most well trained anesthesiologists in the country and all will agree that they feel more than confident entering the workforce with the skills and expertise acquired over the course of our training program.
We participate in the NRMP (National Residency Matching Program). All of our categorical and advanced training class positions are filled through the match. We do not offer out-of-match positions.
