Course Coordinator: Audie Smith, MD - Location: University of Tennessee Medical Center - Maximum Class Size: 3 Students
This elective provides an opportunity to experience the many facets of the practice of anesthesiology while emphasizing the role of the anesthesiologist as a perioperative physician. The main focus of the rotation is centered on supervised practical experience in the administration of intravenous, inhaled and regional anesthesia. Exposure to the anesthesiologist's role in critical care medicine, acute and chronic pain management, obstetrical anesthesia and pre-operative evaluation is also provided. During the rotation, medical students will have multiple opportunities to improve clinical skills in airway management, central venous and arterial cannulation.
At the University of Tennessee Center for Advanced Medical Simulation (UTCAMS), physicians, students, and other members of the healthcare team attain not only improvement in individual skills, but also learn and practice team skills that are essential for patient safety. This type of multi-faceted, orchestrated training improves critical thinking, decision making, and clinical techniques - all without imparting risk to a real patient.
