Group Objectives:

  1. Understand anesthesia as a potential career choice.
  2. Provide students with hands on experience.

The purpose of the Anesthesia Student Interest Group is to expose students to the specialty of anesthesia. As a group, we hope to provide enriching and meaningful experiences in the field of anesthesia. The goals of the this special interest group include providing a source of information about anesthesiology as a career, providing mentorship opportunities, creating an environment in which students can practice clinical skills, and providing an opportunity for students to shadow an anesthesiologist in the operating room. We are looking forward to having new members and also making the Anesthesia Student Interest Group a tool for those to learn more about the specialty. Questions can be directed to the co-presidents Gabrielle Barringer and Rebecca Theisen​. Thank you and Fire Up Chips!
