Our department has two educational systems. One is for medical students. It consists of 32 hours of lectures during the first semester for third-year students and 44 hours of clerkship for the fourth-year students. The other is a residency training program, which is approved by The Korean Society of Anesthesiologists. It includes 48 months of postgraduate training in clinical anesthesia.
Approximately 12,000 surgical anesthetics are administered per year in Korea for a wide variety of procedures. Many sophisticated and complex procedures are performed at our hospital, including congenital cardiac procedures, adult open heart surgery, extensive and sophisticated neurosurgery, and orthopedic surgery. All patients are potential teaching cases. Assignments of cases to residents are made by anesthesiology staff members and every attempt is made to tailor daily work assignments to resident experience levels and educational need.The clinical activities of the Department outside the operating rooms are increasing. There is an active Pain Clinic for diagnosis and treatment of intractable pain using various approaches. Subarachnoid, epidural, and sympathetic nerve blocks are routinely performed. Increasingly, the clinic is involved in the care of cancer patients, who typically require pharmacological and other treatments.The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is staffed by members of the Department of Anesthesiology who have wide experience in managing acute situations and are skilled in the care of critically ill patients. These anesthesiology staff members are responsible for the administrative and medical supervision of the ICU.
