Program Director's Welcome


Welcome to the UMass Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Medicine Residency Program. The department is dedicated to lifelong learning with residency education at its core. We are committed to patient safety and evidenced-based practice. The department offers a balanced clinical and didactic experience that trains residents to become leaders in the field. The many resources provided by the UMass system—including a state-of-the-art simulation center, a high volume of critical cases, and varied practice settings—help our residents to become compassionate and competent professionals. I feel lucky to act as Program Director in this vibrant and collegial atmosphere and look forward to sharing it with you. Please feel free to contact me with questions.
