ANES 300D. Kaiser Santa Clara Medical Center Anesthesia Operating Room Clerkship (KPMC)

Open to Visitors

Courses      Clerkships

Four weeks are spent learning theoretical and practical anesthetic fundamentals under the supervision of the anesthesiology staff at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Santa Clara. The student will rotate with several anesthesiologists and thus receive a diverse exposure to anesthesia techniques and plans. Teaching during this rotation is intensive, didactic, and most importantly individualized; resulting in a rotation of value both to those considering anesthesiology as a future subspecialty and those who are not. Students on this clerkship are expected to prepare and deliver a presentation at one of the Departmental Noon Conferences, to prepare on a daily basis a topic for informal discussion with the attending anesthesiologist, and to attend all educational conferences offered by the Stanford University Hospital Anesthesiology Department. Basic textbook and supporting materials will be loaned to the student. An exit interview from the clerkship will be conducted to mutually exchange feedback regarding the rotation. Please note: Visiting students must obtain approval from Ms. Yun Tao prior to applying for this clerkship. Please email requests to

A major clerkship in medicine or surgery is required.
