During your second year, you’ll participate in multiple full-time, month-long clinical rotations in practice settings, incorporating a full range of surgical procedures involving patients of all ages, at all levels and depth of illness.

    As a student in the Anesthesiologist Assistant program you’ll:

    •Receive the necessary foundation in biomedical and anesthesia sciences for understanding the basis of safe and efficacious delivery of anesthesia care.

    •Develop the fundamental skills and judgment necessary for safe and efficacious delivery of anesthesia care.

    •Learn effective communication skills for patient care and interaction with other members of the healthcare team.

    •Receive encouragement to acquire and evaluate medical information effectively, efficiently, and critically.

    Mercer University currently provides instruction in anesthesia for medical students and surgical residents at the Macon campus and at Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah. Mercer’s participation in South University’s program extends beyond Anesthesiologist faculty members for the program into membership in program committees.

    The Mercer University School of Medicine administration is represented in all governing committees to provide their medical education expertise to the program. South University, through its College of Health Professions, will provide basic science, instrumentation and monitoring and anesthesia equipment components of the program.
