Organization profile

The Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine at Penn State College of Medicine has a proud tradition of growth, education, research and outstanding clinical care provision.

The Department of Anesthesiology was founded in 1970, and the name was extended to include Perioperative Medicine in 2016 to realize the progress that the specialty has already made and will continue to make in the future.

The department prides itself in the foremost delivery of clinical care in the broadening field of anesthesiology and perioperative medicine, which also incorporates acute and chronic pain medicine as well as intensive care medicine in the many specialty units of Penn State Health.

The department's core contribution to postgraduate medical education is exemplary, with more than 70 resident physicians in the ACGME-accredited anesthesiology residency and fellowships in critical care medicine, chronic pain medicine, cardiovascular anesthesiology and pediatric anesthesiology.

Continuing medical education is at the cutting edge for all staff, as the department holds a number of nationally recognized events for simulation, regional anesthesia and perioperative echocardiography training.

Departmental research and scholarship is internationally recognized for its substantial contributions to basic, translational and clinical sciences.
