In 2019 so far, FREIDA™ users have tallied more than 3.5 million views of medical residency programs. With this collection, we draw from the nearly 1,700 first-year positions for anesthesiology and reveal which residency programs offer the most positions.

Rankings are based on FREIDA™ data updated as of Oct. 10, 2019. FREIDA™, the AMA Residency & Fellowship Database®, allows medical students to search for a residency or fellowship from more than 11,000 programs—all accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

Anesthesiology is the practice of medicine dedicated to the relief of pain and periprocedural care of patients before, during and after invasive procedures. It is, quite literally, the physician anesthesiologist’s job to keep patients alive during invasive procedures. By controlling a patient’s level of awareness (hypnosis), response to pain (analgesia), memory (amnesia) and muscle tone (relaxation), the physician anesthesiologist makes a surgical event a “non-event” for the patient while providing an optimal surgical environment for the team. Training required is four years: one year of clinical training, followed by three years of anesthesiology training.
