Anesthesia Residency

The Residency Program at Western University is an integrated program including three teaching hospitals. Each site has a clearly defined role in the program. We are the tertiary referral centre for a catchment area of approximately 2 million people in Southwestern Ontario. Western University is renowned for its strengths in neurosciences, transplantation, cardiac care, hand and upper limb care, and research in many fields.
