The Department of Anesthesiology is a full service department, providing health care services to surgical, obstetric and emergency and pain management patients. Departmental faculty members have diverse medical backgrounds and are graduates of a variety of anesthesiology training programs, including Howard University Hospital. All of the faculty members are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology with the exception of very recent additions, who are now entering the board examination process. Many have additional training in one of the subspecialties: anesthesiology, including pain management and obstetric, cardiac, neurological, pediatric and ambulatory anesthesia.
