Welcome to the Anesthesiology Residency Program
Our 3-year Anesthesiology Residency includes a diverse community composed of 30 residents and more than 50 faculty members. We treat a wide variety of cases, which provides residents with hands-on experience and ample opportunity to develop vital clinical skills. Our working environment encompasses a cooperative, supportive, and respectful environment. Residents work closely with a member of the attending teaching staff in the operating room daily, and our faculty is here to support our students in any way we can.
Interested candidates can apply to our program for PGY-2 positions and submit their Electronic Residency Application Service® (ERAS) applications from September 15th through October 30th. There are 10 open positions available for the upcoming National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), also called The Match.
As part of our program requirements, we look for the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) scores of 200+ or Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX) scores of 400+. We also consider the number of attempts taken to pass the exams. H1 and J1 visas are sponsored. The medical school graduation date should not be more than 7 years prior to applying.
We are committed to serving Maimonides, the Brooklyn community, and the changing needs of society
At Maimonides, I’ve enjoyed a nurturing environment, a vast array of clinical experiences, and outstanding friendships. I have no doubt I will acquire the skills, knowledge and experience needed to become a capable anesthesiologist.
Daniel Escobar, M.D.
Anesthesia residency at Maimonides offers superb training because of the diverse population and challenging cases. It is inevitable that the residents graduating from Maimonides are extremely competent and well-rounded. The supportive, family environment is unique and truly felt by all.

Maimonides has provided amazing opportunities to learn Anesthesiology. Not only have I learnt excellent skills to be competent, I have fun doing it. Residency is hard but I love being at Maimonides and making great friends with co-residents and attendings.
Jason Kim, M.D.
It is incredibly challenging to learn anesthesia in three years. Despite the rigors of residency, I was made to succeed despite challenges. Support is always available from classmates and faculty. Everyone moaned, groaned, laughed, and grew together.
Yan Malamud, D.O.

The Anesthesiology Residency experience
The Department of Anesthesiology is a 3-year residency program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA).
Our large Anesthesiology staff allows for 1-on-1 teaching experience in the operating rooms. Residents are assigned a mentor who provides supervision, evaluation, timely feedback, and support. By the end of the CA3 year of training, our residents are clinically at the level of a consultant anesthesiologist and are proficient in providing care in all of the Rural Referral Center (RRC) required sub-specialties of anesthesia.
The goal of the program is to help prepare the residents to successfully pass the ABA examination while providing a solid clinical anesthesia foundation and training. We administer written and oral examination reviews similar to those given by the ABA. We advocate and provide time for residents to attend didactic conferences and scheduled educational programs. We support our residents with ample opportunities to hone their communication and critical thinking skills while gaining confidence and experience in public speaking. Didactic activities are offered daily throughout the academic year.
Residents are involved in critically evaluating research articles, writing chapters, and are encouraged to participate in entry-level research projects under faculty supervision. The CA2 and CA3 residents present an average of 20 abstracts and clinical case reports at major national meetings like the Anesthesiologists’ National Meeting, the Post Graduate Assembly in Anesthesiology, the International Anesthesia Research Society annual meeting, the Annual Regional Anesthesiology and Acute Pain Medicine Meeting, and the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology annual meeting. All expenses and time off involved with these presentations are covered by the department.
Residents participate in 4 simulated clinical scenarios at Maimonides Simulator Training Center.
The Anesthesiology Residency Program at Maimonides offers excellent training opportunities and provides the best educational experience in an environment that assures a balance between academic and clinical activities.
Our program’s goal is to provide a solid clinical anesthesia education and foundation to train expert Anesthesiologists. Keeping these goals in mind, the program provides ample time and opportunities to attend interactive didactic conferences and other scheduled educational programs. Residents also have plenty of opportunities to hone their communication skills, critical thinking and build confidence as well as gain experience in public speaking.
In addition to solid clinical training, the program provides written and oral examination reviews throughout the academic year to prepare the residents to successfully complete the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) certification process.
We take great pride in our success in preparing residents to become the next generation of expert practitioners.
Completing a residency in Anesthesiology at Maimonides is a unique experience. It is quite the busy hospital with a unique patient population with ample clinically advanced cases. Paired with excellent attendings, obtaining the clinical skills to become a well-rounded anesthesiologist is quite an enjoyable experience here at Maimonides.
Jason Abella, M.D.
Maimonides is one of the largest and busiest centers in Brooklyn and was my top choice for residency. As a CA-3 resident, I can vouch for an exceptional training in becoming a skilled practitioner. I appreciate even more the training I am receiving, as I feel ready to handle independent cases. It feels incredible receiving comprehensive medical training in such a fun-filled environment.
Mohit Garg, M.B.B.S.
What a distinct community of physicians and patients Maimonides is, ensuring an essential evolution towards becoming a slick and skilled anesthesiologist!!! As I have shared with many past medical students, DO NOT be put off by the eclectic arrangement of the hospital. The excellence instilled in us, as residents, provides for an unparalleled competence; moreover, an understanding of different necessary needs in caring for a unique fusion of patients.
