Welcome from our Program Director

Welcome and thank you for your interest in our Anesthesiology program at Los Robles Regional Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, CA. We are inviting applicants to join our four-year residency program consisting of 6 categorical spots per year. Los Robles Anesthesiology is a part of the HCA GME family, which is the largest GME program in the United States.

Our mission at Los Robles is to give high quality training to the next generation of physicians. We aim to create a balance between didactic and skills education, practicing evidence-based medicine, promoting research, and ensuring resident wellness. Our focus will be to integrate our residents into this wonderful and growing community just north of Los Angeles, and to provide the best care for the residents of Thousand Oaks and Ventura County.

Los Robles is a licensed 382-bed acute care facility. Fully accredited by The Joint Commission, it is the only Level II Trauma Center in Eastern Ventura County and the only Emergency room in both Los Angeles and Ventura Counties with the coveted EDAP (Emergency Department Approved for Pediatrics) rating. In addition, it is the only hospital certified by both Counties as a STEM I-designated heart attack center and as an accredited comprehensive Stroke Center.

Our goal is to provide an environment that promotes teamwork and values cultural diversity. Residents in our program will learn from a committed and talented faculty, who are both excellent clinicians and dedicated teachers. We prioritize the resident's education and are committed to assuring that each resident discovers and attains his or her professional and personal goals.
