Anesthesiology Residency Program

Mark Lema, MD, PhD

“Our anesthesiology residency provides you with a broad range of didactic and clinical training experiences, giving you the skills and knowledge you need to thrive in any career path you follow,” says Mark J. Lema, MD, PhD, program director and chair.

We are committed to excellence in resident education, clinical care and research. The extensive training offered by this program prepares each resident to successfully pursue future goals, whether they be in teaching, clinical care or research.

Training in anesthesiology at UB is designed to provide resident physicians with a broad range of experiences that will enable them to function as competent consultants in a private or academic setting. Focused in this fashion, the department combines broad clinical experience with a comprehensive didactic schedule.

Physicians accepted into the residency program will become an integral component of a department that aspires to achieve excellence in teaching, clinical care and research. Unique and diverse training opportunities abound.

Our anesthesiology program is somewhat different in that there is no single university hospital but, in fact, six separate clinical training sites where specialized anesthetic cases are performed.

Our salaries do not include the additional value of your benefits, which UB GME pays. Most institutions ask you to pay for your own benefits. Add $4,000 to $5,000 to our salaries for an accurate figure of your effective salary to compare what you will earn here to other programs.

Following an initial screening of the ERAS application, and based on minimum requirements for acceptance into the program, applicants for residency are invited for interviews.
