Welcome from our Program Director
Thank you for your interest in our Sunrise Health Graduate Medical Education Consortium Anesthesiology Residency program. We are an ACGME accredited four-year categorical program; located in the city of Las Vegas, part of HCA Healthcare's Graduate Medical Education (GME) enterprise.
About our program
I am excited to bring you the first anesthesiology training program in the state of Nevada. Our program offers the best of three worlds. First, a community-based training where system–based practice is an everyday reality, not a distant concept. Second, fellowship trained, experienced faculty providing real–life, practice–based learning and improvement opportunities on a daily, case–by–case basis. Third, HCA GME, through its national scale, offers rich opportunities for clinical research, access to online knowledge resources, expert speakers and consultants, and an opportunity for a long professional career following graduate training.
MountainView Hospital is a state–of–art facility, with an STS rated 3–star cardiothoracic and vascular surgery program, spine surgery and a minimally invasive robotic surgery center.
