WELCOME MESSAGE FROM THE RESIDENCY PROGRAM DIRECTOR
For greater than a century, Temple University Hospital has been a leader and a pioneer in medical advancement within the region. From Philadelphia’s first human pneumonectomy in 1932 to its first minimally invasive mitral valve repair using the da Vinci Xi Surgical System in 2014, the dedicated residents and faculty of the Anesthesiology Department have been integral to the ongoing story of this hospital’s success.
The primary site for residents is Temple University Hospital, which features the region’s only trauma center with a burn unit. Temple University Hospital is the first academic center in the nation with a multidisciplinary department of Thoracic Medicine and Surgery in its nationally acclaimed Temple Lung Center. In addition to its innovative Cardiothoracic program and unique Trauma services, Temple University Hospital features vibrant Organ Transplantation and Robotics teams and an award-winning Stroke program.
Residents also rotate through St. Christopher’s Pediatric Hospital and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, both of which have led the nation in the development of novel pediatric care and treatment. They have received multiple designations by the U.S. News and World Report as being amongst the best pediatric hospitals in the nation.
