Welcome to the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, Section of Anesthesia. The section of Anesthesia has members across a large geographic region, with widely varying practices. From Family Practice Anesthetists working in small and remote towns, to relatively large departments of FRCPC Anesthesiologists in Sudbury and Thunder Bay. We all strive to provide excellence in anesthesia care to patients across the north, as well as providing distinct, high quality education to medical students, residents and other health care providers. In addition to our clinical and teaching work, members of the Section of Anesthesia are involved in key leadership roles in many of the hospitals and health care organizations across the north. Research at NOSM covers both educational and simulation based research projects as well as clinical trials. Our numerous teaching sites cover the spectrum of distinct and different areas of modern practice of anesthesia. We welcome you to come and visit us, join us for an elective, apply to do your residency in one of the most innovative programs, or consider a faculty position here.
