About this book

Comprehensive Guide to Education in Anesthesia is the first single-source volume on the current practice of teaching and learning in this specialty which has long been at the forefront of innovation in medical education. It is edited by one of the great anesthesiology educators in the United States and brings together contributions from leading educators from across the US covering all aspects of anesthesiology education, from medical school and post-graduate training to board certification and continuing medical education.

Topics include best educational practices, closed claim analysis, giving feedback to superiors, residency and fellowship training and requirements, maintenance of certification, the role of simulation, interacting with other specialties, community and global outreach, and more. The book conveys the unique nature of the specialty and is aimed at medical students contemplating a career in anesthesiology, residents and fellows, educators, and administrators.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“The multi-authored text, Comprehensive Guide to Education in Anesthesia, takes the reader on a journey, from the roots of academic anesthesia to a place of global and community outreach. … the content could appeal to practitioners who are new to the American system of anesthesia education and are looking for a synopsis of the anesthesia-training continuum – from medical student to seasoned practitioner engaged in lifelong learning.” (Judith Littleford, Canadian Journal of Anesthesia/Journal canadien d'anesthésie, Vol. 61, July, 2014)
