  • Chairman's Message

    On behalf of the members of the Department of Anesthesiology here at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, we extend a very warm welcome to you.

    Our department's mission is three-fold:

    • Providing state-of-the-art patient care in areas of perioperative medicine, critical care and pain management;
    • Providing the highest quality of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education;
    • Making major contributions to the science of anesthesiology and expanding the body of basic and applied science knowledge through research.

    Our team of well over 100 anesthesiology providers (faculty, residents and CRNAs) administer approximately 25,000 anesthetics annually in numerous anesthetizing locations, which include Wiser Hospital for Women and Infants, University Hospital and Batson Children's Hospital, all located on the same clinical campus, with specialist divisions including Pediatric Anesthesia, Pain Management, Obstetric and Gynecologic Anesthesia, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, Ambulatory Anesthesia and our Off-Site Anesthesia team.

    In addition to hospital services, our Division of Pain Management provides state-of-the-art treatment of acute and chronic pain for both adult and pediatric patients in our pain clinics located at the Jackson Medical Mall and University Pavilion

    Our Division of Education's primary focus is on our excellent ACGME-accredited anesthesiology residency and fellowship programs, which provide structured and tailored didactics and clinical experience for the differing levels of trainees. Our department also offers medical student clerkship rotations and provides clinical training for student nurse anesthetists (SRNAs) from the University of Alabama at Birmingham program. Faculty development lectures and programs are also offered through our education division. 

    The focus of our Division of Research, which comprises basic, behavioral and clinical researchers, is to make positive contributions to the science of anesthesiology and become leaders in the advancement of the clinical practice of anesthesiology. To this end, we have a number of clinical projects and basic research currently ongoing within the department.

    Our department is a dynamic academic department, providing excellent clinical services, teaching, professional and scholarly contributions, with plans of continued strong academic growth . We very much appreciate your interest in our department and encourage you to browse our website and contact us with any questions you may have.
