Welcome Message

from Dr. Thomas Henthorn, Professor & Chair


The Department of Anesthesiology is an independent department within  one of the three campuses of the University of Colorado. The Health Sciences Center is now located at our new Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora. Our affiliate hospitals are the University of Colorado Hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado, Denver Health, and the Denver Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

The Department offers a four-year residency, approved by the American Board of Anesthesiology and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. In addition, the Department offers advanced fellowship training in anesthetic subspecialties such as Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology, Critical Care Anesthesiology, Pediatric Anesthesiology, and Pain Management, anesthesiology research at the University of Colorado Hospital and Children's Hospital Colorado. The Department has also developed post-doctoral research fellowships that take advantage of the university's post-graduate clinician-scientist training program. To help encourage residents entering our program commit to a research-oriented academic career, we offer the Robert W. Virtue Research Scholarship to an entering CA-1 resident each year.

Our faculty has a new resolve to create an exciting academic environment that will build upon what was already recognized as one of the finest residency programs in the country. We have recently recruited the highest caliber from top academic centers across the country (Columbia, Cornell, UCSF, University of Chicago, Harvard, Johns Hopkins to name a few) to drive new programs in research and virtually every area of clinical care. Whether your interests in our Department are to practice anesthesiology, perioperative care, pain medicine, do research, teach, be taught, or even that you are one of our patients and want to know more about the care provided by our physicians, this website is a good place to start.
