The University of Colorado Master of Science in
Anesthesiology Program takes great pride in offering students the highest
caliber of training from our faculty and the clinical opportunities provided by
a world class facility. Anschutz Medical Campus, including the University of
Colorado Hospital and Children’s Hospital Colorado, provides an unparalleled
clinical learning experience and the Department of Anesthesiology faculty is
heavily invested in the success of our students. This rigorous 28 month program challenges
students to become excellent clinical providers focused on the highest quality
of patient care.
Graduates of the CU AA Program join a very special group of
alumni who have proceeded to represent the University locally as well as
nationwide. Our program has graduates in Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Missouri,
New Mexico, Texas and Wisconsin.
We celebrate continued success as far as the type of
well-rounded, professional, and highly skilled graduates our students have
become. We also commend all of the CU graduates on a record of 100% job
placement and 100% passing on the National Certification Exam.
We look forward to continued success and growth.
