The Department

A Message From The Chairman:

Suyderhoud-JohanWelcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Medicine! I encourage you to review the Department’s web site to gain an appreciation of what our training program offers: a rich and varied clinical environment allowing us to offer a truly comprehensive and balanced training program, located in one of America’s most livable cities.

Our faculty is young, very well trained, and board certified (approximately half in them subspecialties) coming from top programs in the country. They are eager to mentor our residents as they assimilate the procedural, clinical decision making and leadership skills necessary to become outstanding consultants in anesthesiology.

The Department is dedicating itself to modeling its care paradigms to the Perioperative Surgical Home. Our goal is to train anesthesiology residents to become leaders in perioperative medicine, where they will be able to provide every patient undergoing a procedure coordinated and efficient patient centric care, safely and with compassion.  I invite you to call on us or visit our program and make your own assessment. On behalf of our faculty and our three affiliated teaching hospitals, I thank you for taking the time to learn more about us.
