Students administer sedation, regional and general anesthesia to pediatric and adult patients for a wide variety of surgical specialties including general surgery, orthopedics, otolaryngology, obstetrics, thoracic, vascular, cardiac and neurology. Students administer on average more than 800 anesthetics over at least 2,000 clinical hours.
