Residency in Anesthesiology

Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine (AU-CVM)

The Department of Clinical Sciences and Advanced Medicine

The Department of Clinical Sciences at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine (AU-CVM) is offering one position for a residency in anesthesiology starting on July 15, 2018. The residency is a three-year program designed to meet the requirements to be eligible for the certifying examination of the American College of Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia (ACVAA), in addition to allowing the resident to complete a Master of Science degree. This program provides exposure to a large number of small animal, equine, farm animal, and exotic/wildlife cases. Additional training can be provided through rotations in emergency and critical care, cardiology, internal medicine, neurology, radiology, surgery, and other clinical services. Under the supervision of board certified faculty members, the resident will be responsible for primary and supervisory care of patients presenting to the anesthesia service. The residency is supported by 3 ACVAA Diplomate Anesthesiologists with a 4th faculty member expected to join the college by Fall of 2018. After-hours on call duty is a required part of the residency and is shared between the anesthesiology resident, technicians, and faculty.

The house officer training program at AU-CVM includes residencies in many other AVMA-recognized specialties (internal medicine, oncology, radiology, critical care, dermatology, neurology, ophthalmology, etc.). Senior faculty members actively participate in the day-to-day case management and teaching. Collaborative interactions and consultation across specialties and species help to provide a broad-based experience for house officers. Special facilities include a 24/7 intensive care units, critical care services, digital radiography, on-site CT and MRI capabilities, and linear accelerator.

Residents are an integral part of the education of veterinary students on the teaching rotations and will assist in instruction through seminars, lectures, rounds discussions and teaching laboratories. Residents are also expected to attend or participate in all scheduled house officer seminars, journal clubs and M&M rounds.

Residencies at AU-CVM require applicants to be a graduate of a college of veterinary medicine and to have completed a rotating internship (or equivalent experience). Residents must be able to meet entrance requirements for the AU Graduate School and must be enrolled in the graduate program throughout their residency program. Residents are considered Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) and receive a tuition waiver for graduate courses and partially-subsidized health insurance. However, it should be noted that graduate school fees and insurance costs amounting to approximately $3,000 per year are the responsibility of the resident and are subject to change. Residents are required to take graduate courses each semester and to participate in research activities under the guidance of a faculty member. The combination of graduate courses and research activities should culminate in the successful resident achieving a Master of Science degree.

All residencies will be no more than three years in length. Membership in the AVMA is required to begin the residency to obtain professional liability insurance paid for by the department. Faculty state licensure by examination is required and the fee is reimbursed by the Department of Clinical Sciences. Any required work permits or visas are the responsibility of the applicant.
