The Anesthesiology Department at King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (Gen. Org.) plays an active role in educating and training anesthesia residents. The residency training program is for five (5) years with mandatory rotation outside the Institution for 12 months.
The primary goal of the program is to provide the residents with the opportunity to develop and hone their skills to the highest capacity. In addition, ample opportunity for research exists at all levels of training, and the residents are encouraged to pursue this with full support of the staff. The residents are offered one academic day per week and are invited to participate in the departmental grand rounds and journal clubs.
