Program Objectives: The practitioner of anesthesiology must possess the scientific background for clinical practice and must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of not only the specialty, but of all additional related disciplines which may impact it. The anesthesiologist must serve as an expert in matters involving health care delivery, and serve as an informed provider/manager of clinical and educational services. The anesthesiologist must maintain an up-to-theminute armamentarium of knowledge skills for the selection and use of complex equipment, pharmacological agents and procedures necessary for the provision of quality patient care. As more surgical procedures are performed outside the operating room, anesthesiologists must be familiar with the various clinical settings and medical emergencies with which he/ she may be confronted. Anesthesiologists must consistently update their knowledge level and skills.
