Director's welcome

Our small program size allows us to customize rotation experiences, so each trainee emerges with the ability to handle clinical scenarios from complex regional anesthesia procedures and management, to the tremendous breadth of transplantation and neurosurgery.


The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).


After the first year of anesthesia training, residents are expected to sit for the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) BASIC exam, the first part of their written boards. Upon completion of their residency, residents will be expected to sit for the ABA ADVANCED exam, the final part of their written board.

Program history

The Anesthesiology Residency at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida began in 2003, with the first class graduating in 2006.
