Faculty of Medicine
Department of Anesthesia
Each year anesthesiologists from the University of Toronto provide in excess of 100,000 general anesthetics, perform 12,000 epidural or spinal anesthetics for childbirth, work in intensive care units that look after the most critically ill patients in the city, help over 400 patients who require expert palliative care, and treat thousands of patients suffering from chronic pain.
The Department of Anesthesia provides exemplary educational programs across the spectrum of undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education and professional development. This is accomplished through the commitment and dedication of our excellent teachers and the recognition of the importance of their contributions to the academic achievements of the department.
