We offer a program in Family Practice Anesthesia (FPA) that combines learning experiences in tertiary care centres in Hamilton, large regional community hospitals and smaller FPA type community hospitals. The learner will have a well-rounded experience, building skills in general, pediatric and obstetrical anesthesia as well as neuraxial and regional anesthesia. The learner will also have a horizontal learning experience in Family Practice Anesthesia. This will involve regularly scheduled one-week blocks with Family Practice Anesthetists and will combine operating room time with time in primary care settings such as office practice, hospitalist medicine and emergency medicine. There is some flexibility to tailor both the content and geography of rotations to meet the learner’s specific needs.
