  • Change is in the Air!

    The University of Mississippi is growing!  Nowhere is that more evident than in the new buildings under construction on campus. One of the buildings is slated to house the School of Medicine with a floor dedicated to the Simulation Center. The Department of Anesthesiology is intimately involved in simulation from both a teaching and research perspective. We are developing a curriculum with our surgical and nursing colleagues to bring true team training to our residency program in addition to simulating many of the rare complications of the practice of anesthesia.

    As the growth of our invasive procedure and surgical practice continues rapidly, new operating rooms are being designed and new locations for practice considered.  Thus, there are many new learning opportunities in the operating rooms, intensive care units and pain clinic. Our staff of anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists is growing; our commitment to outstanding education continues unabated. 

    The highlight of our academic year, Dr. Claude Brunson's Teaching Day, honors an outstanding member of our faculty. At the teaching day, the senior residents present their intellectual projects done during residency. The faculty, residents, members of the Mississippi Society of Anesthesiologists and families are present. The past June, Dr. David Wilkinson, president of the World Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists, was our visiting professor for both the teaching day and our graduation. 

    Academic year 2015-16 is filled with new opportunities for the Department of Anesthesiology at UMMC in all aspects of our practice. It is an exciting time filled with untapped potential and opportunities. We look forward to having your participation - for by embracing change we grow and become far more than anyone thought possible!
