Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology

Our hospital is a county facility with an affiliation with UCLA. We have a devoted faculty committed to providing the best possible care for our patients together with the finest teaching for our trainees.

We have a four-year categorical residency program consisting of 28 Anesthesiology residents (7 PGY-1s, 7, PGY-2s, 7 PGY-3s, and 7 PGY-4s). The hands-on experience for our residents is second to none while our didactic academic program provides a solid foundation for the board examinations and beyond.

These are exciting times for the Anesthesiology Department at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. We have moved into a new building housing 16 new operating rooms with all the latest amenities and equipment. The hospital, along with the Department of Health Services implemented a new electronic medical record system on November 1st 2014 and it has had positive outcomes.

I encourage you to take a good look at Harbor-UCLA if you are considering training in anesthesiology.
