Residency in Anesthesiology at Northwell Health

The anesthesiology residency program at Northwell Health is designed to provide residents with the academic foundation, cognitive ability, and clinical skills necessary to deliver the highest quality patient care in the specialty. Students are exposed to a large volume of diverse clinical material, rigorous didactics, and the opportunity to participate in numerous research projects.

The Department of Anesthesiology touches many departments in the health system through the operating rooms. Whether rotating through operating rooms at North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center or Cohen Children’s Medical Center, anesthesiology residents work side-by-side with attending physicians and residents in areas including:

  • Pathology 
  • Cardiovascular services
  • Neurology
  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Pulmonary medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Endocrinology
  • General surgery
  • Otolaryngology
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery

The Department of Anesthesiology performs more than 80,000 anesthetic procedures annually at the three tertiary locations. The program is sponsored by Northwell Health, one of the largest health systems in the United States and home to Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell and the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research.


We offer exceptional inpatient and outpatient surgical care for adults and children for both emergency and elective procedures.
