  • Chairman's Message

    “Please pardon our dust” is a sign often seen in retail stores as a renovation is in progress. It often means some temporary inconvenience while holding the promise of great things to come. Driving onto the University of Mississippi campus, the dust is everywhere. And with the airborne grime come the assurance of growth. A new research building’s foundations are being poured, and the medical center campus continues to grow.

    It is also a time of growth within the Department of Anesthesiology.

    The anesthesiology residency, a four-year program, offers a structured first-year experience to allow the resident to gain important fundamentals of medical care. The following three years are a graded continuum of responsibility and rotation through the major subspecialties of anesthesiology. There are fantastic learning experiences in critical care medicine, and the program is expanding. The cardiac surgical program is advancing at a rapid rate with many learning opportunities for residents. Our pediatric hospital, the Batson Children’s Hospital, is home to one of the largest neonatal intensive care units in the country. A congenital open heart program thrives within the hospital walls. Our pain clinic continues to be fully subscribed and the opportunity to help those suffering from painful conditions remains constant.

    The Department of Anesthesiology’s goal remains to provide the best possible training for those interested in a career in anesthesiology. As a department, we actively seek resident input in managing the various aspects of the department, and the residency training program.

    As we move in new and exciting directions and the University of Mississippi Medical Center, and in the Department of Anesthesiology, we welcome you to join us on this exciting journey. But, for the moment, please pardon our dust!
