Anesthesiology Residency Program

Stacey Watt, MD.

“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 Stacey Watt, MD, program director.

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.

  • Curriculum
    Our curriculum stimulates and develops the intellectual and technical capabilities of every resident.
  • Didactics
    During lectures, basic science material is presented and then applied in selected case management discussions. Faculty members believe that problem solving is central to the practice of anesthesiology.
  • Our Residents
    Our residents value our program for helping them develop clinical independence and laying the foundation for a successful career.
  • Chief Residents’ Message
    Dear future anesthesia residents,
  • Resident Spotlight Nomination
    The Resident Spotlight Nomination is to recognize a Resident who has displayed exemplary service to patients and/or families, colleagues, and the outstanding educational efforts and/or humanitarian service.
  • Clinical Training Sites
    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.
  • Salary, Benefits and Support
    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.
  • How to Apply
    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.

A Beautiful, Vibrant Living Community

  • Buffalo is known for its snow, but dig a little deeper and you’ll discover that our region enjoys four distinct seasons.

    Our region is characterized by a neighborly way of life, an unpretentious nature and spirited loyalty among residents.

    Get past the snowy stereotype and you’ll be immediately captivated by Buffalo’s beauty, heritage, temperate climate and welcoming environment.
