Residency Program

​​​The Anesthesiology Residency T​​raining program at the American University of Beirut Medical Center and Faculty of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education - International (ACGME-I), and has been in substantial compliance with its Foundational and Advanced Specialty  requirements since July 2016.
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The aim of the Anesthesiology Residency Training Program is to enable each resident to develop his or her skills to the highest capacity. We accomplish this by providing an in-depth didactic program, a wide variety of clinical experiences and outstanding teaching and mentorship. 

Transitional Year (PGY 1) residents rotate in disciplines that offer fundamental clinical skills in the primary specialties, while more senior residents are exposed to clinical cases from all anesthesia subspecialties: cardiothoracic anesthesia, neuro anesthesia, pediatric anesthesia, regional anesthesia, acute, chronic and cancer pain procedures, obstetric anesthesia, procedural sedation and anesthesia, anesthesia for general ambulatory and major surgeries. In addition, they get the chance to perform specialized procedures. We also provide opportunity for research at all levels of training. Upon completion of our program, graduates can confidently take their places in academic or community practice and be successful contributors to the health care team.​
