Master of Medical Science in Anesthesia Science
The Master of Science in Anesthesia Science (Anesthesiologist Assistant) program is distinguished among Anesthesiologist Assistant programs by a tight temporal coupling between theoretical knowledge presented in the classroom and practical applications of that knowledge. A fully-equipped mock operating room and anesthesia learning lab permit students to almost immediately apply the knowledge gained in the classroom. The program was developed to provide education in current practices in anesthesiology and instill the highest standards of professionalism and service to patients.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the program recognizes that anesthesia shadowing hours may be difficult to obtain. In response, the AA program is waiving the verification of familiarity with the practice of anesthesia requirement for the 2020-2021 admission cycle. Although the requirement is waived, anesthesia shadowing hours are highly encouraged, and every effort should be made to obtain them safely. If an applicant is able to obtain shadowing hours, the verification form should be uploaded into the CASAA application.
